Living Lessons

Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

                                   ~ Helen Keller, American author and activist

How true!  Maybe this is why adults often can’t seem to get through to the youth, teaching them from experience.  We try to help the younger crowd avoid painful situations but they “insist” on learning the hard way.  Sometimes things just have to be experienced and lived out, even when it gets ugly.

Not always in agreement with Ms. Keller’s “activism”, but this quote is right on.
