What's one lesson you find super compelling?

If you could put a megaphone to the ears of the world for just 5 mintues, what's the one lesson you would teach. It doesn't have to be serious, but it can be. It doesn't have to be about math, science, literature, or history, but it can be. It just needs to capture the minds of your audience.

        All things have been discussed somewhere in the past.I was thinking at the time of writing that post of a great person who had the most amazing education,one wouldn't know until you asked her and yet here she was working as a counselor in a dingy community based project,to make a long story short i asked her a question and she just laughed and said "Some idiot has got to pull the rest along otherwise they'll get left behind" not very inspiring but years later i got what she meant.

        Well Jordan you've certainly started an avalanche ;)
