Education Is Priceless

When a person becomes awash in ignorance there comes with it a stunting of the mind which develops into a hardening of the heart that does not allow this person to embrace a sense of empathy toward fellow planet beings. How do we understand and enter into another's feelings if we ourselves through ignorance have little capacity toward feelings ? 

Education, in my mind, becomes the predominant bulwark protecting more  humans from becoming desensitized, stunted, and hardened. Life on this planet evolved most of the time through small steps but, from time to time, when an appreciable advance of knowledge occurred it resulted in grand giant leaps for mankind. Education is the standard by which mankind builds our World.
