The future…

It’s been 7 years since I became a father. It put me directly in the driving seat to watch a new human being (now 2 new human beings) grow/develop. The experience has put alot of things in perspective for me, chief among them is my mortality. As my children age, so do I. As they get stronger and more active, the opposite will eventually be my fate. A day will come when our roles may be reversed as it relates to care-giving.

“I believe the children are the future…” Whitney Houston was spot on. We all have a collective responsibility to secure the future by securing our children.

A child’s mind is a blank slated waiting to be be filled. How do we fill that slate? We live in an age when there so many things competing for our children’s attention, how does a good parent get most of their child/ren’s attention?

What about the external environment? Are we actively engaged in helping to preserve the world (earth) for them?

How about the society in which they will have to participate?

Are we grooming positive, people-centered leaders and critical thinkers? The ones who will not only see the wolves in sheep’s clothing, but also see the wolves in shepherd’s clothing.

Today’s choices influence tomorrow’s reality. Protect the future, protect the children.
