Chess, math and language and history thoughts of the day
Chess is a universal language. We don't have to speak the same language, think the same, believe the same things, be the same color. How many things in life are actually depicted without these prejudices?
It should be taught as part of the curriculum in schools as it develops advanced thinking and you don't need any specific talent or be a gifted athletic. What I love about it is its history. Throughout that thousands of years and civilizations and ages that have passed, it has remained. That's awesome!
