Two Thoughts. Questions. Of Becoming Human.

  • What good is it to make a child ready for college and career yet not also—not foremost—for life? The child will become a worker but never a human.
  • It is a harsh judgment to say someone is not human or will not become a human. Any man or woman is surely human enough to be treated with dignity. Yes, but human enough to treat oneself and one’s neighbors with dignity? to face death with dignity? to awake again with dignity and not with a shred of shame?
  • Is this an unbearably stupid thought? Has the moral and spiritual education of youth fallen so far out of vogue that our whole society would scoff at it? Does it seem ridiculous to imagine an education that trains a child for the college of humanity and for a career in becoming human?
