I am not sure Dan Jordan would have called himself a scholar, but he was an
amazing educator. When I was a kid I saw him play piano and entertain the
children out of children's classes (mine).
It is a mystery what happened to him. His body was found about a hundred
miles from where I live, and his funeral was a huge event. My mother is
always telling stories about him an his family.
He graduated with a degree in music, but decided he would never be a concert
pianist, so he got a doctorate in education. I so admire the curriculum he
recommended in Massachusetts, some of it is still in place, based upon the
virtues we all should want students to acquire. My daughter joined the
military before she was ever taught moral virtues in a classroom (well
except Baha'i school, but don't get me started).
Anyway, nice talking to you. I would love to tell Dan Jordan stories with
you any time.

I agree on focusing on the major purpose of any religion, that of love and
unity universally with selfless love.
Years ago I recall a renowned scholar Baha'i Dr. Daniel C. Jordan saying
there are delicious paradoxes in the Baha'i Writings and what one needs to
do when confronted by them is dig deeper to gain more understanding for
all the Writings are focused on creating and maintaining unity.
