I wrote my favorite Nelson Mandela quote for my that one kid Sebetsang in his notebook – “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – and he nailed it:
“Education is the most powerful weapon, that is true because if you don’t learn, you won’t be anything in the world. You won’t change the world into the beautiful place. You’ll just be the thief or a drunker.
Education is important because when you’re learning at school you can be skilled and have knowledge. You can make your community cheerful and you can change your life into a better life. You can make changes with your family if you’re educated.
If you’re educated, you can make lots of good things. You can create stories or draw anything by your own.
When you’re educated, you can also be respected and taken as a big boss. And you can also be famous.
WARNING TO SCHOLARS:
The tin that make noise, doesn’t have anything inside it. The tin that don’t make noise, have something inside it.
This thing simply means that when you’re making noise, you don’t have anything in your head. And when you don’t make noise, you have something good in your head.”
Don’t ya wish every kid had this mindset? Sure is refreshing!
