Weapons

February 7, 2022

“We can surely no longer pretend that our children are growing up into a peaceful, secure, and civilized world.

“We’ve come to the point where it’s irresponsible to try to protect them from the irrational world they will have to live in when they grow up.

“The children themselves haven’t yet isolated themselves by selfishness and indifference; they do not fall easily into the error of despair; they are considerably braver than most grownups.

“Our responsibility to them is not to pretend that if we don’t look, evil will go away, but to give them weapons against it.”

—- Madeline L’angelle in
A Circle of Quiet

Point your kids in the right direction; when they’re old they won’t be lost.

—- Proverbs 22:6, The Message version
