I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quote #139....
"Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege than the raising of the next generation."
This is powerfully heavy.What a huge, huge responsibility it is to raise a child into the world today.
But is there a higher privilege than leaving your mark, and hopefully in the form of a a better, more improved, more educated being than yourself? You have about 18 years, give or take a few, to do the absolute best you can. Your task.... to pass on the proper lessons and messages in order for your offspring to make life and it's surroundings even better than you did.
It reminds me of a Fathers day ad I once saw..... Anyone can be a father, but it takes a real man to be a DAD.
Being a parent. Massive responsibility, but what a REWARDING privilege. Anyone agree?
That's my view...... What Say You?
