  9. I think the young lady is an example of the problems with education. Abstract references to no specific individuals or body’s, sounds like there’s a lot of work to be done.

    • Thanks for the feedback Juju Queen. Hope the young lady was inspired to find knowledge of self and study harder…

      Tune into the show next week show on Nature.
