Every year there are fund raisers to buy school supplies for children returning to school.
The schools say they can’t affort it while paying school board member $200,00 a year plus, but that is another story.
When at school, many of the kids are not only given free lunches and in many cases free breakfast, now some schools are also providing free dinners because they come from single parent or low income homes.
Where are the parents, I think we all know.
Many had kids before they could afford them, many children are being raised in single parent homes, and many are laying in the corner drunk or on drugs.
Personal responsibility has become a thing of the past. In many instances, people have become so accustomed to letting the government solve all their problems they no longer even consider the fact they may have a part in governing their own lives.
It has become fashionable to play the part of the victim, by becoming a victim in as many areas as they can, they believe it increases their importance to society and dissolves any responsibility they may have, it’s always someone else’s fault.
By becoming a victim, they draw a lot of attention to themselves in the same way some people are always late to a meeting, they get a lot of attention by making a grand entrance after everyone else is already there.
Many adults grew up in environments where there was no guidance in how to conduct their life and garner positive attention by doing positive deeds.
Kids have grown up being coddled with their every need supplied by someone else and sheltered from life’s hardships. As a result when they grow up they are left with no coping skills and unable to function as they should. In turn they raise their kids the same way they were raised, only coddling them more then they were while growing up.
Each generation continues to buy into the victim mentality until very few actually know anything about personal responsibility and becoming self reliant.
Many have forgotten what Our Ancestors taught us.
If we don’t break the cycle, how many kids will there be needing support from government and society in the next generation?
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of
Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.
While we have advanced technically far superior to those that came before us, we have lagged behind in spiritual knowledge.
For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.
He has published several books about his adventures.
