Credentials On The Wall!!! Emancipate Yourself From Mental Slavery

marley

When some people realize that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being, maybe they will start treating others with respect. Damn shame how some people with degrees think they are all that. Your attitude is so bad towards others that no one wants to be around you. Just who do you think you are? What right do you have to criticize or judge someone else? You’re so caught up in your books and degrees that you have lost the true focus of reality and the real world. It requires wisdom to understand wisdom and a wise person knows that there is something to be learned from everyone. To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to.To know that you know, and to know that you don’t know, that is real wisdom so enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and discover they were the big things. remember it’s nice to be important but it’s much more important to be nice. Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, no one but ourselves can free our minds. By QUEMELA

Start the Conversation Early About the Dangers of Underage Drinking

Most young people ages 12 to 20 do not drink. However, in 2012, about 9.3 million young people in this age group, or one out of four, had used alcohol. It is important to talk with young people early and often about the dangers of underage drinking. Helping them to understand that they do not need to drink to fit in and have fun is key. It is also important to teach them ways to say no and how to cope with peer pressure. Teachers and parents can use the resources on Too Smart to Start to begin the conversation.
