I Want to Tell the Truth When I Grow Up

Studying early childhood education as an undergrad, I attended a conference where the following question was posed.
What do you say to parents or administrators who ask what you're doing to "prepare young children for school"?
 When I heard the answer the speaker gave, I gasped, and knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I like to say: If you knew that, in a year or so from now, there would be a famine across the entire earth, and there wouldn't be enough to eat ...
... would you start starving yourself now?
I want to be someone who can say things like this out loud, in a professional setting. Getting paid for it will just be the icing on the cake.
