    I don't know about you, but LEGO was my favorite toy when I was a child. Still I like looking at things made of those shiny creative blocks. However, like LEGO or not, this is a story you need to hear if you're interested in success stories, motivation, creativity, problem solving, and destiny.

    #3 I totally agree, Kevin. I know it's an expensive toy, but I see it as an investment for my son. (By the way, I still enjoy looking at them, too.)

    Never had Legos around our house, it was Tinker Toys and Lincoln Logs.

    If like me, you have spent millions o $ buying Lego for your kids, you will truly appreciate this story. It also highlights on some key factors for success - not letting a disaster stop you, and an obsessive compulsion for quality. Thanks for sharing it Selim.

    Great that they are still around. And when we all hurt our feet when we stepped on them.

    I may have missed one because I was going too fast, and hadn't noticed it went from synonym to antonym. -★★★ Top 4.27% Your vocabulary size is equal to that of a 30-year-old successful American businessperson!

    It's free for the Kindle, but get it NOW. Research doesn't exactly support the value of brain exercises, but who cares. It's not going to harm you, and it's fun, if you are into this kind of thing.

    #9 #10 Great wisdom to know that the value and extent of education for your child(ren) rests on you, the parent. It is so simple to say, yet it screams from the school bells that have now turned into buzzers and gongs.

    #9 #10 One of my mentors had said once "You talk too much. You have too ears, but one mouth. God tells you to speak once, listen twice." I took these words to the heart, and became a lifelong learner. You're right, William. I wish parents would be so sensitive about this. Unfortunately, most of them leave the education of their kids to the schools.

    #6 If only more parents had the same attitude and mental attributes this would be a very different world.. Once the thirst for knowledge is introduced, you will spend the rest of your life drinking parched from the cup. It only takes the right spark like my friend Selim.

    #5 One of the most common lies in my country is that "people have been uneducated and made ignorant." Education is "one of the" government's responsibilities, but "main responsibility" of the individuals. I grew up in the same country, and people call me "The Walking Library," because nobody stopped me from reading, searching, exploring, and learning. My son goes to school, but as his father, it's me who is responsible for his education foremost, not his teachers. And if those teachers are somehow wrong about something, I would emphasize it, too! When I was teaching English classes, my students (and they were adults, not kids or teens) would ask me "Can we talk English as good as you do?" I would always come up with the same answer: "If you don't want to learn, nobody can teach you. If you do, you will learn despite me!"

    #3 I wish I were wrong in most sincerity, but do not feel this is the nature of the majority. I truly believe we are being manipulated by our leadership creating divisive issues in race, sex and religion to name a few. Unfortunately the skills to do so are well honed and most good people do not anticipate treachery. There is simply no greater villain than those who would divide us in hatred and mistrust. We really can not blame our leadership or media, as they would have no power if we failed to follow. There is a better way, we must simply step off the path and hate no more.

    #3 William, Unfortunately you are correct. I believe that if we just role over and take it we would be just as guilty as those who denie us. As a wise man once said. I would rather die for something rather than live for nothing. Thank you for sharing your views.

    Human rights is the fair, ethical and humane treatment of individuals regardless of sex, religion or race. It is a myth of course. An ideal we aspire to as a culture, but as a species we do not act upon. The proportion of our resources devoted to destruction and hatred demonstrates this truth all to clearly..

    @Dr. Allen Brown Sadly enough, our God-given rights are being flushed down the toilet as an excuse for keeping us safe. Meanwhile, police departments are being given weapons that, Constitutionally, they never should have had in the first place. Because no one is taught how to think critically, the public still swallows the 9/11 lie, despite experts like Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and Pilots for 9/11 Truth having a plethora of evidence that the whole story around 9/11 was fabricated. We live in a country that is rapidly taking on the aspects of the State that Orwell mentioned in "1984". Books are being removed from library shelves (for example) that were written during WWII...because (I suspect) they challenge some of the most basic ideas about Hitler's actions vis-a-vis Poland among other things, like Hitler's peace treaty with Great Britain . When all the books of that era are finally gone, and the people who fought in the War are dead, the State is free to rewrite history to its liking. This is but one example of the evil being perpetrated against the American people and the rest of the world.
