Hope is hard to give up, probably because it's renewable.

Very nice quote.

The same can be said for superstition...

Of course, belief and especially religious belief is passed down through generations. This is how indoctrination occurs in children when they are influenced and coerced so much by parents and others that they are barely given the choice or chance to make up their own mind.

Joggle, where much of the world is already brainwashing children through television, magazines, and internet ads, I feel happy knowing my influence in the home as a loving parent can trump the powerful influence of the media over my children. Maybe, just maybe, I will be able to "brainwash" or TEACH my children into living the healthy morals they were taught through my religious beliefs. Not forgetting, all children grow up and have a mind of their own, where they are able to look back and see the outcome of their own choices and decide for themselves if they will continue in what their parents taught them as children, or go another route.

Train up a child....four out of five have come back (of their own choice) and there is hope for the fifth.
