“In many tribal cultures, it was said that if the [youth] were not shaped by the skills and love of elders, then they would destroy the culture. If the fires that innately burn inside youths are not intentionally and lovingly added to the hearth of community, they will burn down the structures of culture, just to feel the warmth. When the culture fails to draw out the innate beauty of its children, it’s deciding to turn that beauty to violence.”- Michael Meade
