Lazy, Ignorant, or Both?
Recently I was walking through a museum and reading the cards that dotted each exhibit when all of a sudden a quote big as life was there before me on the wall.
“Steeped in ignorance, wrapped in self-satisfaction and complacency, possessed of little or no ambition…These people present a problem that demands and challenges the attention of thinking men and women.” Miriam Sizer 1929 Teacher
When I read those words it came to me the answer that I am asked everywhere I go. The question is; Dick, why is it so important to you, to teach Personal Accountability and Personal Leadership every day and everywhere you go?
I now had the answer and the next thing I knew a new thought ran through my head. It said; Rewrite and share the knowledge from The Book of Woodcraft by Ernest Thompson Seton. A model of Life Skills to be used in everyday life. Not just a formal education, but a hands on learning of life skills, of values, of negotiating oneself through the turbulent time of self-growth known as Personal Accountability and Personal Leadership.
What came next was the research, preparation, and now it is time for the execution of the plan.
I cannot do this alone. I need the help of many to pass along the knowledge.

If You like I believe we are in desperate need of true Leaders. Please Help!
