The Odyssey – for children.

Standard

Years ago I learned about Greek legends in school – it’s been a while so I was curious to check out my younger brother’s child copy of “The Odyssey.” It was very cool but it was surprising to read something so “politically incorrect” in this day and age 😀 I certainly enjoyed it and see why boys and men alike will never tire of these tales. Much could be gained from sharing these stories with school children in the North as well; conditioning our future to solely depend on a modern, convenient, high-tech, pacifistic social construct can best be described as reckless. What happens the moment that climate change or destabilisation as a result of conflict shatters our current comfort?
