The Last King of Scotland

If you live always as a child and never let the mind grow, what type of seeds will 
you then sow?
 
That of fantasy and selfishness is how a child can think, not understanding how 
ideas can sink. 
 
Without knowing how to decipher the reasons for why things are the way they 
turned out to be.
 
Darkness shadows the light that shows the path to growth and peace.
 
If we live without consequences as a child believes, then we live with intolerance 
and lies.
 
For only through knowledge can our world and our humanity survive



**I wrote this after watching "The Last King of Scotland"

    Excellent movie about Idi Amin's doctor. Amin was a brutal and dangerous man. Another tyrant that our history will remember. Have a lovely weekend Kimberly....:)
