As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups. And I remain extremely concerned when I see what’s happening in our country, which is in many ways the luckiest place in the world. We don’t seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids.
I believe that we parents must encourage our children to become educated, so they can get into a good college that we cannot afford.
God is everywhere but He is most manifest in man. So serve man as God. That is as good as worshipping God.
