Remembering what’s important.
The Miley Cyrus “debate” has taken the internet—and many of our conversations—by storm.
Yet, let’s not forget what’s important and what deserves our real attention and thought.
While celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher and Miley Cyrus surely (and for better or for worse) have an influence over the culture that our children are being raised within, these celebrities hold clout because of the press that they receive.
So, let’s also give our attention to areas of life and to areas of the world and our country that have real needs—because, unfortunately, Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream hasn’t come completely true.
Watch President Obama commemorate the 50th Anniversary of MLK Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech as well as the original too.
I’m certainly not suggesting that we all bury our heads in the sand and not address things like disturbing entertainment performances, but I am also offering up to you that what you choose to view and read has a larger influence on what’s presented to us in the first place—and what ends up having a prominent place in your children’s lives and minds.
