History teaches us that when a civilization’s environment provides the resources necessary to meet their basic needs, the focus of their energy and attention turns to creating a belief system that displays gratitude for the blessings they received and respect for the supplier of those blessings.
In showing their gratitude and respect for the nature or god that provided their sustenance, the natural gifts and talents of the indigenous people were discovered and developed to create a unity of purpose among the people by celebrating their good fortune in the form of art, music, and dance. They recorded their difficult journey to their final destination through verbal stories told to each new generation and then in writing when it became popularized.
Once the stressors of survival were met, people began to develop their culture.
The stressors of meeting our basic needs, food, clothing, and shelter, have nearly been eliminated for most people living in America.
Social service agencies provide food, clothing, and shelter for citizens. Schools provide food, and clothing to children. Not for profit and Non-profit agencies provide food, clothing, and shelter for individuals who don’t qualify for social services.
With the stressors of life removed, our society, according to history, should be concentrating on showing gratitude and respect for the nature or god that provided our sustenance by discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents of our children towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged citizens.
We must teach our children to be grateful for the blessings they receive by living in America and to show their gratitude for those blessings by respecting the world in which we live and the many cultures who have survived the hazards of this world to create a culture of gratitude and respect among their people.
Our children deserve to display their gifts and talents in gratitude and respect for living in a country that provides the resources that meet their basic needs.
Our children will be grateful and show respect for their environment, when adults show them that we are grateful for and respect them.
