Message: Bill Gates' recent speech at Mount Whitney High School in Visalia, California is worthwhile
reading for anyone. Love him or hate him, he sure hit the nail on the head with this one. To anyone with kids of any age,
and to all of us who were kids once, here is some advice Mr. Gates recently dished
at a speech to the Mount Whitney Student Assembly.
He talked about how feel-good,
and politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality, and how this method was setting
them up for failure in the real world. He concluded by outlining the following 11 Rules:
1: Life is not fair ... get used to it.
Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem.
However, the world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you start feeling
Rule 3: You will NOT make $40,000 a year right out of high school,
and you won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If
you think your teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers
at McDonalds should not be beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping ... they called
6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine.
Rule 7: Before you
were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes
and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation,
try delousing the closet in your own bedroom.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away
with recognizing that there are winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have even
failing grades, and they'll give you as much time as you want to get the right answer on an exam. This doesn't bear the slightest
resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off, and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself.
supposed to do that on your own time.
10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop, and go out and find a job.
Rule 11: Be nice to NERDS. Chances are you will end up working for one.
profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed"
Echoes of Our Hearts
Sometimes we close our eyes and just listen to the echoes of
our hearts. We all fall in love, and there are times when we love so much that we lose ourselves in our own emotions. More
often than not, we wonder why there is a love that grows, and a love that grows cold. We would start to search for answers
and try to find where love has gone wrong. But in the end, we find ourselves where we started, for we cannot question love
when it has its own reasons. Love will always be as it always has been -- silent, mysterious and deeply profound.
of us believe that love is forever, that love never dies, only to be disillusioned in the end when we find our hands empty
and our hearts longing. We mistakenly look at love as a need to be fulfilled. But love is only a gift given to us.
We should not hold it in our hands for we may never find the strength to let it go when it decides to leave.
only embrace its warmth and glow while it last and then freely open our arms when its time to say goodbye.
fall in love with someone, we don't want that feeling to end for it is everything we are, everything that we wanted to be.
We pray that love will stay and grow in our hearts. But if it doesn't, then we should never let our lives be taken by it,
for life should not end where heartaches begin.
There is always a reason why we have to move on. When we have to say
goodbye to the feelings we wanted to stay forever, let us not wave our hands with a heavy heart. For love will have to set
its wings free and find the place where it belongs. We may have lost it but then again, when we close our eyes and listen
to the echoes of our hearts, we will hear that feeling resounding silently forever.
Then we'll know that it has never
left us, for the good that we have become because of love will always stay. It will always be there reminding us that we should
be thankful and happy, not because we have lost love, but because, for once in our lives, that feeling lived in our hearts
and made us happy.
