Why do we have so many tasks each day? Because we have somany missions to accomplish.

But, as in any case where multiple tasks call, there must be one mission that takes priority over all others.

What is that priority? It must be education. The task of guiding young people to know what is harmful and what is beneficial—for themselves and for the world—and steering them in the right direction.

It is a priority because every moment that a young person does not know why she or he is here is another moment lost from this young person’s life. And there is no way you can return that moment.
