Work is wearing me down....sucking much of the life force out of me....and causing my synapses to misfire. So blogging has been light. But I do occasionally have the odd spark of a question that really makes me wonder.
Why isn't basic first aid and CPR taught as part of the curriculum in our public schools across the nation?
We as a society are utterly failing our youth in most aspects of the hierarchy of needs: they tend to know only that food comes packaged from the market with little to no knowledge of hunting or farming. The tend to know only that fire comes from a Bic or if they're lucky, a Zippo. And for life saving measures, they tend to know only 'call 911'.
We have created a society of utter dependency on an utterly fragile infrastructure of convenience and sloth.
