We live in a world of instant news. We here about events as they are unfolding. We learn about our nation and world in 30 second or 1 minute sound bites. We are often completely overloaded with facts and tidbits of trivia.
Wisdom is a much slower process. It must be discovered. It is hard earned through experience. One of my many hopes for our future is that we may once again rediscover the difference between knowledge and wisdom and learn to value the latter more than the former.
