The west might have been won with guns but I want the future to be won with something else…Intellect, faith, hope, charity, wisdom, peace, inclusion, tolerance, etc.
I’m not the smartest person in the world but I know the value learning and growing as a person. Intelligence and thinking for yourself is something we should never take for granted. In the world we live in we need free thinkers and people willing to be divergent. Intellectuals are needed to keep the world from sinking into a place of ignorance and hatred and even violence.
