LETTERS: Children are the future of society

The shooting in Quebec City is another example of ‘the ailment’ that plagues the world.

A symptom of how people feel about themselves, and how they feel towards others.

If we, as a collective, are to achieve the ultimate goal of world peace, the children are the tool to that future.

A child who learns to work collectively learns to work co-operatively.

A child who learns to work individually learns leadership. A child who learns peacemaking, peace keeping and conflict resolution has the skills to maintain long-term relationships. A child who is exposed to different cultures has knowledge, acceptance of others and is unified as a human being.

A child who learns to respect, to care has compassion for all life. A child who loves.

Collectively, on a global level, we can become the ‘divine intervention’ by teaching the children the skills to achieve the ultimate goal of peace on Earth.

The child creates the family — a universal family.
