"Get Your Crayons Back!"

Get your crayons back!”
 “When you enter kindergarten they give you a box of crayons and some blank paper and tell you to go for it. So you do, and it’s fun, and it’s free, and it’s creative.”

“Then,” he continues in his booming Kentucky voice, “they give you an Algebra book and tell you to grow up, get a job, be responsible. And you lock all your creativity away.”

“It’s time to let it out, get back in touch with your inner child and the box of crayons.”

Do they test for creativity, passion and all that good stuff on these standardized tests?

The more we can keep our inner child in the forefront, the better our lives will be. In my opinion.
