As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think ad reflect.
The other day I wrote about a question with regards to education, and wondered if education was the only key to success. I thought about this question from a global perspective, where the word developed and developing countries have little significance when human made and natural disaster strikes. Those nations that are already poverty stricken, and those developed nations; where disaster takes away all the efforts that humans made to develop regions and nations. While I examined this question from this perspective, I related it to myself and studies. Was the question my own excuse to personally escape, from the quest of seeking knowledge itself? Maybe it was? Maybe it wasn't, but I do believe that my previous thoughts offer some ideas, especially with the idea of promoting literacy, to eventually assist regional development, and allow communities to understand that literacy, reading and writing also contribute to building and creating a sense of empowerment.
I don't think that I was trying to escape, but once again at another level of developing thoughts and research, I came to a realization of the many harsh truths that have been discovered, brutal histories, which while I wish there was emotional preparation for this, I realized that the quest to seek and pursue knowledge at the higher levels is a battle within, and also through the interactions that one has. It takes guts and courage to pursue the quest for knowledge acquisition, and it takes guts and courage to fight, defend, pursue your focus area, and what you believe in.
