"It was not an untutored nor an ignorant world that battled long agonizing years on the shell-cratered no-man's land; but on the contrary, it was the so-called educated world that shot the deadly missiles, sank the defenseless in the briny deeps, bombed the cities, and tortured and maimed the millions of the flowers of the nations.
"But were they really educated in the true sense of the word?
"They had the power of knowledge, but lacked the development of the moral and spiritual side, the lack of which permitted them to use their knowledge toward the destruction of mankind, instead of further teaching of the peoples of the universe, making them prosperous, happy, and contented."
--Spencer W. Kimball
Next time you get down on yourself because your kids aren't scoring on level in math or reading comprehension, remember that isn't your primary objective.
You are developing their moral and spiritual side so that they will use their skills for creation, not destruction.
(And if you know the poem In Flander's Fields, you'll know why the image of the poppies...)
