“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and sufferng can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success acheived.” Helen Keller
Note: Do children learn about Helen Keller in school these days?
Note 2: Do children learn the importance of developing character and self-reliance in school these days?
Call me cynical, but I would bet the answer to both is “no.”
