Think…

What are we doing to each other?

What are we teaching our children?

I watch the news and I hear report after report of people being attacked and some even killed, some of the attackers in their teens and I ask again

What are we teaching our children?

Are we teaching them compassion?

Empathy?

Kindness?

Are we teaching them to look for the good in people?

Are we teaching them to treat others as they would wish to be treated?

Are we teaching them that violence is never the answer?

Children learn by example.

They are not born with hate and prejudice.

They learn hate and prejudice.

They can unlearn hate and prejudice.

What are we teaching our children?

What are you teaching your children?
