Thought du Jour

There is not a lot in our society today that supports and inspires very young people. Many kids have been left to the wolves and their own survival mechanisms. There are too many parents who have failed or ruined their kids as well. Real heroes and role-models are conspicuously absent. The result is a generation which knows nothing (thanks to parents’ and contemporary education’s failures) and which has unrealistic expectations. Nice kids quite often, but dumb, na├»ve, and not embarrassed to share their ignorance with many others either. The main dream of many kids today is to strike it rich and/or become a celebrity. They have learned their lessons well from media and ubiquitous advertising and its unquestioned lies. The idea of actually working is a foreign concept to many except immigrant kids.
