Power of Knowledge

Our world is tainted by ignorance and indifference which only education and universal awareness can alleviate.

Our world is tainted by ignorance and indifference which only education and universal awareness can alleviate.

Education is beyond the mere analysis of pointless parts of speech or the ability to plug in numbers into an unnecessary formula; education is the strive to fully understand the world around you. The complexity of human nature and the diversity of our environment requires at least a basic awareness, which only education can provide. Although school may be viewed as mundane and limited, the ability to problem solve and overcome inevitable stress is worth enduring the monotony of school.
Education is a gift which the less fortunate are often deprived of; so, those (myself included) who are lucky enough to be granted this blessing must take advantage of it. School is not a place to simply struggle through to the end; the sacrifices made to give you an education and end your ignorance must amount to something. Giving up in school practically ensures future mediocrity; it is impossible to succeed when you already lack the motivation to do so. If the same resources and opportunities for education were granted to all of humanity, the world would be a much better, more understanding place that people would actually want to understand. All must strive to end their ignorance and fully understand and accept all those that we encounter. Therefore, I implore you to take advantage of your blessings, and use them to bless those around you. Only education and the attempt for better can ease suffering and provide fulfillment. Education is the key to both success and happiness, so we all must learn to love it.
