The Problem

Jim copied the answer from Nancy
sue copied the answer from Jim
Tim copied the answer Sue, and then
Anne copied the answer from him
And Fran copied Anne and Jan copied Fran
The answer kept passing along
And no one got caught, but the problem was-
Nancy had it wrong.

-Shel Silverstein

We have to be careful of resting in the familiar. Careful of believing in the way things are. Trusting in what others do. Accepting what’s passed along.

Sometimes there’s another way. We just have to be willing and open to learning.
