Today my students and I talked on a break about the downfall of our race. Not any specific race in particular, but the human race. And how did we gauge such a dramatic conclusion? By focusing on the untenable proposition that our world culture is becoming debased in a kind of moral and cultural turbidity bound by violence, an anticlimactic downturn of education, and the inability of our young to acknowledge their shortcomings.
Are we right? Perhaps it was conversation based solely on personal observations, even our reflections of ourselves. Whatever the case, I am sure that no matter what happens to us as a race. The world will go on…with, or without us.
