" the other day at school the headteacher addressed the students in assembly and said that the main point of a school, and why we all attend, is success and that’s bullshit. complete utter BULLSHIT.
school should be about learning how to be a better person, to be kind, generous, to have a loving soul. and how to make the most of the life you have been blessed with. and just to be happy.
success is about money and a certain type of intelligence that passes exams. but there are many types of intelligence and many many things which are more important than money.
then comes the real stinger; adults have the audacity to wonder why none of us are happy. it’s because the system is brutal and more often than not we are beaten by it, the pain we feel is so big it blocks any pleasure and for many they struggle to find the means to carry on.
but think about this there will come a day when we are in charge and those currently with control will need our help and perhaps then they will listen to our sorrow. and if not well we haven’t lost anything, we only learn that those men and women are as stupid as we are strong. what i mean is it won’t matter any longer because we will be the ones making the decisions so that the students in our schools are treated fairly and with the respect and care that they need and will grow up looking forward to their future and not looking back for a place to hide "
