When she was in elementary school, Alana was resisting studying. She asked me why we have to study, why we have to learn things. She was very worked up, almost in tears.

I patiently explained that we need knowledge in order to get along in life. There are things we need to know in order to do the things we want to do. Then she came up with a question I couldn’t answer.

“Dad, why can’t we be BORN with knowledge?”
