Finally!!! The younger generation is starting to wake up!!!
The Smartest Valedictorian To Ever Make a Speech.

[link to buelahman.wordpress.com]

<snip>
The 2010 Graduating Class of Coxsackie-Athens High School.
Comment: The following speech was delivered by top of the class student Erica Goldson during the graduation ceremony at Coxsackie-Athens High School on June 25, 2010

Here I stand...

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, “If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years . .” ?The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast — How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?” ?Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

It only gets better from here. Scroll down a bit from the vid for the text.

The "all seeing eye" is only half seeing.

That half is then focused as the whole.

That's how this NWO functions.

Ive already made a thread about it.

Your only seeing half of the whole, every human is blind to the other half.

well, it is 3 in the afternoon. about time the rascals got out of bed. hehe

Really though, are they waking up if they are quoting zen masters? Isn't that some old shit that doesn't really mean much when you can't pay rent because you can't spell because you think books are dumb and listen to hip hop? I don't know if Zen Masters could help these kids.

Excellent speech. And not a word of it untrue.

So is it worth it to go $100,000 in debt to get a University degree so you can work at McDonalds? If they're hiring at all....

PNL,
That happens a lot around here. I just wish AC would have watched the video/read the text. Might have learned something.
