Very good post by my friend Tiago. See the video below:
I think most of people that left their countries realized that this is a serious issue. But when you come from a developing country, that is not news. What surprises me above is to see that rich countries are starting to worry about that. And I am glad that countries like US do that ahead of time, before it is too late for them.
On a related note, today I a sticker on a car window saying something like that: "Send our children to universities, not to war". It is a good start when this kind of mindset starts becoming more common around here.
