“What any human being can do in life depends upon the foundation laid between birth and age five.”
– James Meredith
We are teachers – in some form or another. Now, perhaps a majority of the reading audience are devoid of the appropriate formal certification, but we are indeed teachers nonetheless. Knowingly or unknowingly instructing through our behavior, language, and actions; we shape and mold young, virginal, and formless minds. That cannot be taken for granted. We are, first and foremost, the foreman of fashioning intellectual promise, building emotional stability, and framing principled character. During those early formative years, our guidance and instruction is needed – no – it is desperately crucial to a child’s development. Their future hinges on what we teach them in the present. And that is where we should be – present; never absent from their growth and maturation. It is time for us to lead by example. We are the models of morality. We are the cultivators of character. We are the installers of integrity. We enable enthusiasm for education, and we advocate the accrual of astounding accomplishments. The foundation is ready to be laid. Let’s not wait any longer.
Indeed we are. I thank You personally for what the thoughts, satorial post and life knowledge you have shared. Good or bad no matter you have been an open book. I’m mentoring some younger brothas at eastern. They have you locked in their web favorites. God bless. Continue to be a King and a world changer.
As in Eastern Michigan? I would love to hook up one of these days. Thanks for reading. And keep up the good work brother. We need more mentors such as yourself.
