WAR IS AN INABILITY TO COMMUNICATE
Did you ever notice little children playing in the school yard? When they were not understood and their needs were not met they used physical violence and hit somebody? Well folks, that happens a lot to adults that were not educated properly and can't communicate effectively enough to get themselves understood and then they hit too ... except when they hit it's with bullets and bombs. We have to get out of the stone age. When will school system recognize that perhaps the most important thing we can do is to give our children the tools they need to be able to communicate effectively in this ever changing world. In our country we not only have many different languages, but our CULTURES are so diverse that we need to teach effective speaking, listening and understanding of each others intentions. That's why I feel one way to go about bringing important information to our kids is that we should be showing foreign films in schools so that students see how other people live, and that those other people all want and need the same things as human beings on this earth, but they just do these things differently. Our students then will learn to RESPECT people of other nations. We can at least start there. Is that so far out of our imagination?
