I witnessed a conversation between two men, both a product of trying times. Both clawed their way out of times uncertain, escaping a land where blood was more abundant than water. Both adamant that providing a better quality of life for their children is non-negotiable. Under no circumstance should their children feel unsafe, or want for the warmth of a home, or for an opportunity to learn.
Yet both men, after spending much time from home, find that their progeny are unmotivated, in their eyes wasting their life not taking stock of these opportunities and fully engaging these gifts towards a worthwhile purpose.
Ironically, what they conspired to give their children is freedom, and now, that these children are participating in a system where they have the freedom to be "unmotivated", these men find their world burning.
