    As a Child of one of the Beatles and having been exposed to several interested people famous for various reasons not just music, I was fortunate enough to be around adults who treated me as a person instead of them playing the roll of enforcer.
    I was always taught and listened to by them instead of being ordered or told to do this or that.
    This allowed for relationships to be made as a deep bond and as a genuinely educational and learning experience.
    I think as a whole, the general public including the school systems today focus too much on negative behaviors and correction instead of focusing more on growth and discovery and true discussion as person to person as opposed to most learning and home environments are lecturer or enforcer to inferior small person.
    I believe education is one of our most important fundamentals. Besides the family unit and the principles in which our great Nation was founded. I believe that more focus should be placed on writing and development of the imagination and that as a result of this along comes the love and enjoyment of learning and the development naturally then of better reading and writing skills. If you forced a child to learn or listen they never will.
    I believe that we should teach our children more about the importance of the Library of Congress and how it works, how to fill out a copyright form and send it in an actual addressed and stamped envelope.
    Perhaps possibly a really cool virtual tour made available to the classroom and expose them also to the great masters who own copyrights within that library so precious to so many of us.
    It is after all a vital part of our lives as Americans and even as humans across the globe. Everyday most of us watch, read, discuss, or write something that is protected by the Library of Congress. How amazing is that?
    So along with teaching the importance of the library, and it’s many uses and jobs, also teaching them how to use it. Including a virtual tour. And of course the Poem a Day and the guests are a wonderful thing.
    🙂

    When I click on either of the links for the survey I keep getting a message that says, “This survey is now closed.”
