Perhaps if we were better educators (parents especially) our children would find better ways to solve disputes than killing one another.


I agree that we can have better education on less money. It starts at home. Instead of letting our children have unlimited screen time, lets push them outside so they can discover the real world. American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under 3 not have ANY screen time -- zero. How many children in the US under the age of 3 meet that ideal?

What a wonderful speech by a wonderful woman! Luckily my children are being educated at home where they get real history lessons. Where their elem. school would be teaching about taking care of the environment and appreciating diversity. Yes, we do learn those things too, but I'm glad that my 3rd grader is learning about the revolutionary war and my 1st grader is learning about classical Greece.

And I love Rice comment about how the arts are also important in education.

But did not like the photo and feature of the 15 BYU students who protested this special guest. Case in point at where our educational system has failed. They have no sense of history, are not well-informed in current event and that so-called "peace" symbol is offensive. It originally was the symbol of the upside-down crucifixion of the Apostle Peter. I think it's a symbol of hate.

It is our fault for all the the problems we face. We elected them. If you want good governemnt, elected someone NOT seeking office. Go to your meetings and listen to people who don't really want to, but will serve when called on. Look for people who have the ideals you think would make the best representative. Then you will have good governemnt.
