“Don Juan had always said to me that our great enemy is the fact that we never believe what is happening to us… when we finally realize what is going on it is usually too late to turn back. He contended that it is always the intellect that fools us, because it receives the message first, but rather than giving it credence and acting on it immediately, it dallies with it instead.”

Stark Realities

n

From here:

“The stark realities that persist mean that millions of families will be facing the holidays in temporary homes, or homes under threat, and far too many children will be wishing for an end to the uncertainty and distress their family is facing rather than an Xbox or Barbie doll.”

I actually think that 2nd part has potential to be a good thing. Here is a generation of kids who are being forced to change their world view from aspiring to gross consumerism to a secure and sustainable (the flipside of the uncertainty coin) lifestyle. Is America leading the way in reframing childhood?
