A fairy tale world or a pink dream life? Nope… none of them; just a profound admiration for the old codes.
The king Arthur, with his knights and the round table; might be considered a legend of the middle ages. But, I do know that I gain the knowledge that it is better the mentioned “Old Codes;” where no range of rank was among them only a “primus inter pares”. They were men of:
The characteristics above are absent in the position of the Secretary of The Department of Education here in Puerto Rico; who comes with the election of the governor every four years… a total political seat. They just want to impress the political parties’ and not a better education. Because of their untruth...they always screw up...ending in bad shape. What an immense need of moral values! What an immense need of real men!
Jesus Rivera Sanchez
The Department of Education
Jesus Sanchez Rivera, ex secretary of Puerto Rico Department of Education (resigned, October 23, 2011), had been changing, demanding, punishing and embarrassing professionals of the education with his “new” teacher evaluating system. As others in that position they never have cared for what children, parents or teachers really need. Instead of following the old codes...a good chat around the round table. Perhaps the strikes, stresses and bad communication would have stopped. Today, Jesus Sanchez Rivera, is being accused of stealing water and electricity. Hummm...I wonder why he decided to resign!!!
Another ex Puerto Rico Education Secretary, Victor Fajardo, has a provisional liberty after five years of prison with a sentence of twelve years for a millionaire fraud during his administration of Puerto Rico Department of Education.
Representation of men with moral values
Follow the old codes
What is happening to the values of our "educational" heads????
We can not depend on the values of others. We need to do as Ephesians 6:16 says, " in addition to all, taking up the shields of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one."
Let's follow the old codes and sit on the round table with our children, our loved ones...with those which in one way or another are in some way being led by us. And those which we follow lead them to do the same. Cause and effect is not just one more expectation of the education system...is more deep than that. It is for us the "people" to understand that everything has a consequence.
Knights of the Round Table
Protected their kingdoms
The Round Table was founded on:
Even nature shows us the mission of protecting our family...our kingdoms!!!
Learn what nature teaches. Try to practice the mission.
Righteousness cannot be a legend
Served their king
How do we serve our king? First you need to discover who is he? Then give:
- and loyalty.
Lessons from the Knights
The best example
Used might to uphold the weak
Our best example is Jesus Christ, the one and only which used might to uphold the weak. We could try the "Old Codes"...but with Jesus Christ in our hearts.
Do you know him?
That's My King
Blessings to all as we engage with a righteous lifestyle around the round table!
