“There is no better equalizer in this world than education; it’s the greatest justice you can give people.”
– HM Queen Rania.
The problem that Jordan is facing not being able to communicate throughout the society is more important than demanding reform, having mislead thoughts of how to express your freedom of speech is a major problem whether by our Media and printed-or online newspapers or the public, but also how to connect it and direct it in the fixing-error process.
We have a tunnel-vision mindset that is holding us back from getting the reform done, When we start working in a tunnel vision mind frame automatically other variables in our process start to deteriorate because we start focusing less on them and more on things that don’t help Jordan move ahead. A major issue that occurred and the King pointed out is that we become prisoners of our thoughts, where we keep on speaking about the problem and elaborating and get intimidated with that mind set, thus, we stop focusing on how to fix things and how to start the change process and get it done.
The time has come my fellow Jordanians to help our country move ahead, Lets stop our radical thinking and move forward with ourselves, we definitely all agree that Jordan is in a critical state in terms of resources, we cannot apply more pressure on it as we are doing now by rioting and getting more attention to us worldwide. The ball is on our side, we can lead this reform and fix our errors, and if we really love our country we should start volunteering and work diligently towards our goals. HM Queen Rania launched great mega projects to help change the methodology of our education system drastically, in which it is very important to be done very fast because that’s what our next generations will act upon, these projects demands a lot of volunteers and aids from the private sector.
Thinking strategically and how we can solve our corruption, we need to start and put our pressure towards private sector and corporations who are making enormous profits in relation to the cost of the services or products they provide, and even in relation to the economy of our country. These private corporations are not being affected as much as the worldwide recession. We need to apply more pressure on them fundraise our important mega projects, for instance, Jordan Education Initiative (JEI) is one of these projects that targets the education sector by enhancing the curriculums of our subjects and training teachers to be more effective and teach better. This project needs major funding that should be collected from the private sector on one hand, and volunteerism from each one of us on the other hand. Enhancing our education is very important in this stage because we need to rely on having an innovative generation with the highest efficiency possible that will lead that thorough change gradually, consequently, we can advance faster and with the aid of ubiquitous technologies it will be even way more faster
Lastly, I would encourage every single desirous person and who really love Jordan from the deep of their heart, to go out and give a hand to any of these Initiatives or non-profit projects, a not just that but also be responsible in his/her acts towards advancing our country.
