…hit the books

As many school kids headed to their first day of the new school year today, it seems like a good opportunity for all of us to remember the value of education and the importance of being open to learning even after our school days are behind us.

Because there’s no age limit for learning new things about the world, about ourselves, about each other. Life is full of opportunities to learn.

And I’m not just talking about online. Yes, the advent of the internet created an awesome resource to share information, at speeds that were previously unheard of, but to quote Abraham Lincoln:

So, I hope that this new school year reminds us all to stay curious, keep learning, and triple check our sources.

    I grew up in Springfield, Illinois, and was raised on Lincoln’s wisdom. Thanks for sharing a new one that I had not heard before…
