The Gina Gee Project- Graduation & Tea Bags

Peace FAM:
Ms. Gina Gee is at it again. Today she is celebrating the fact that she got to walk across the stage. Last year she missed her graduation, and some of her supporters at the school made sure she got to walk with the graduating kindergarten class this year. One of the reasons I like her doing this project is that she is motivated to do better in every aspect of her life. She is sharing her self, and her personal growth with the world. I know many adults may not agree with this, but unfortunately Gina chose me as her father, and since I believe that it takes a village to not only raise a child, but to move a child to greatness, I will allow her to continue exposing herself to her village. Since we are in the digital age her village is also digital, so welcome.
Gina and Shasha also video taped themselves helping me make "That Ambroisa", by getting the tea bags ready, and you get to see Ms. Shasha in her fullness. So sit back watch, and share with other young people in your life. I am looking forward to her next project. Peace

p.s. I am only writing for Gina Gee until she evolves to the point when she can write for herself. Education in motion.

IGNORANCE

What happened to the desire to learn? Where has it gone in our youth, and most of our adults? I have the pleasure of talking to youth and adults on daily basis, and appears that a majority of them have know desire to receive new information. could it be that all the media has made people feel that they have no need to learn. All they have to do is look something up on their smart phone. I would be satisfied if I witnessed this going on more but I don't.
Now I must state this is simply my observation and i am sharing it because I am looking for someone out there that can encourage me by stating that they are around a majority of friends, family, a students that are out in the world trying to learn and share new information. I am seriously wondering if we have spent so much time boosting self esteem that we have some how killed the curiosity. Learning takes some form of humbleness, in fact humbleness is one of the first steps to learning and being receptive to learning. have we turned our schools into social clubs where the young and old alike can gather and talk about the bull shit that infest our society.
I had a conversation with some of my students and had an epiphany about the word ignorance. The word ignore is buried within it. To be ignorant means if we look at it, to ignore reality, truth, and anything outside the base of what you think or believe. Now a days ignorance is running rampant and definitely can plug into the zombie virus I spoke about in my last post (check it out). When we shut our self off from reality we put ourselves in a dangerous place, when we ignore the facts we allow ourselves to be lead by the nose like a beast of burden by those that are manipulating what we believe or think we know. This makes us slaves to those who are manipulating the facts and/or our beliefs. So those on the Journey make sure you keep an open mind and question everything.
