The Way I See It #273
So this was on my Starbucks coffee cup today as I enjoyed my very first Gingerbread Latte of the season:
All children need a laptop. Not a computer, but a human laptop. Moms, dads, grannies and grandpas, aunts, uncles - someone to hold them, read to them, teach them. Loved ones who will embrace them and pass on the experience, rituals and knowledge of a hundred previous generations. Loved ones who will pass to the next generation their expectations of them, their hopes, and their dreams.
General Colin L. Powell Founder of America's Promise The Allicance for Youth
Also on the cup is the standard "do not get pissed at us if you do not agree" disclaimer:
This is is the author's opinion, not necessarily that of Starbucks."
Well, you know what? It may not necessarily reflect Starbucks views, but it sure has hell does reflect my views! The above quote by Mr. Powell is one that is very amazing, yet simple and true.
