True Leadership & Power Rests in the Spirit of Servant Leaders / #positivedisruption #unstoppable #thisAmericanQuilt

What are true leaders? Do we covet fame? Do we covet the people's acknowledgement of our effort, our work, our success in our endeavors? 

What is true leadership? Is our passion and conviction beholden to polls?

No. That is vanity.

A true leader moves silently, does the work and moves out without letting you know he was there. A true leader does not seek the spotlight and gives credit to the team putting the least first. This is servant leadership.

How large can a true leader become when she does not seek adulation? How powerful does their influence become across the land when they do not stop to be praised in the parades?

What understanding can be gleamed from this kind of leader? What is true power? How does the servant leader retain power over the ordinary political leader? 

How does the servant leader exercise coup de etats left and right without physical armies? How does he retain power and bring his opponents to heal?


Faster than a speeding bullet
Stronger than iron and steel
More agile and certain than Pele in his best day
So is the consummate servant leader

She brings herself down to the feet of others
She wins hearts easily as she cleans their feet
They give her their hearts
She lifts their minds
They walk in step
Shoulder to shoulder

So lowly and meek
Servant Leader with no agenda
Yet so much power and strength 
Pulling from free hearts
With cleaned feet
And emboldened hearts

You wouldn't believe
A revolution under way
And the leader dancing'

It is not the responsibility of empty vessels to create the motivation to learn, but rather, the prerogative to teach, the very responsibility of it, must be entrusted to the teacher. It can be so, that according to a child’s social-economic status, a affluent upbringing can be infused with a ‘comfort space’ of human development not generally experienced in the life of the child who hails from a low-income community. 
This juxtaposition in the human development and daily experiences of the affluent child and the child who lives at or near the poverty line bring a different array of positive and negative forces which impact their general well-being. As these two general sets of children age, the difference becomes more contrasted and is clearly evident at the time both reach middle school years. One need only look at children who receive private schooling as opposed to those who receive public school education in low-income neighborhoods. A child who attends private schooling and then e…

The Golden Rule & The Duty of Critical Thinkers / #socialresponsibility #edchat #TeamUSA

updated 2:24 pm est 11/10/17 The idea of cultivating critical thinkers is easily a lofty ideal purported to be achieved throughout academia and espoused as the hallmark of journalistic integrity.  Achieving the critical thinking mind requires a certain bravery, wherein, once our ability to tap into our own knowledge of content matter is done, we must require it upon ourself to contrast our assessment and infer from an ‘outsiders’ point of view what is true and right and what is inaccurate and, even possibly, the propagandization of a special interest.
For the critical thinker, the affinity to discern is attached to our decision to look at the hard truth and favor this over our viewpoints, our political inclinations, and our stance on any given subject. This is hard to do.
In the following essay, I ask what exercise in democracy is achieved if political forces practice varying levels of indoctrination, in effect swaying public interest towards their ‘camp,’ rather than promoting …
