It occurs to me how many of us have been shamed by our successes and those of our children. The best arguments I have against this religious policy for adults are twofold. One is that we are admonished by sacred scripture to be good stewards of our assets, going forth and multiplying them. The other is that we are told to let our faith be as that of children, as embodied in the hymn that is taught to children, "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. Hide it under a bushel? No! I'm gonna let it shine. We should all let ourselves and our students (and children) shine as brightly as possible to guide those who are seeking some source of light.
Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine!
