Heroes for youth

George Lucas is famously famous for Star Wars and Indiana Jones. And rightly so. But it is refreshing to hear him discussing something quite different. Or rather not that different as you’ll hear if you play the video above.

I think hearing a passion and a spirit about something as important as the raising up genuine heroes in the minds of our youth. Mr Lucas makes his statements in the way he knows best, powerful storytelling on the silver screen.

As schools head back in New Zealand I am beginning to wonder the importance of encouraging the youth of our nation in the best way I know how – One class at a time.
