A couple of days ago Gutter started a thread "What's wrong with kids these days". I got a good chuckle out of the picture he posted and the responses. I didn't post anything at the time but the thought has stuck with me.
What is wrong with kids these days? Nothing!!! Sure times have changed, but I don't think people have changed much. Time and space seem to have little to do with it. Nor do race creed or colour. There are good folk and bad folk and most of us are somewhere in between.
There have been trouble makers forever. Perhaps we are just inundated with news reports or pictures, making us more aware. Maybe its just the numbers - more people, means that there are more bad people.
I just want to say that Kids today are Alright. Sure the whole hormone thing makes a mess of things. And just like the rest of us, kids make mistakes especially when they are just trying new things.
Just be realistic and give the kids a break. Try saying "hi" instead of looking away or crossing the street to avoid them. Make a connection instead of a barrier.
To all the teens, peace.
