Another post, this time reflecting on how students these days are getting short-changed by their instructors. I know it's similar in message to what I've posted before but I have a few more thoughts to add, and a few more analogies to make. Just thought I needed to get these written down. It's giving me quite a bit of clarity in what I want to do in the next few years. I'm already talking to my son about doing something along the lines of what I write about in the post. Thankfully, he seems willing to help.

It might seem like a long stretch but I end the post with thoughts about how software developers, Aikido practitioners, and anyone else with like mind and ideals can help bring about world peace. It's a dream worth dreaming, especially in these turbulent times filled with hate, greed, and selfishness.
