Worried About The Younger Generation
Todays children will be the ones who are running the country when we are old and frail. They will be our doctors, our lawyers, our police force, our military, our government, our president.
We worry about our children in 2 ways.
We worry that what we are doing today is not going to leave our children much of a world to be part of. Funny how even though that is a worry we don't seem to be doing enough as the current people in charge to make it better. We worry, but we refuse to change our ways.
We also worry that the youth today isn't going to be "good enough." Not OUR children, of course, but the youth in general. The spoiled generation, enabled for all their lives. Expecting everything to be handed to them at a whim.
And both groups of worriers are right. We are not doing the best we can for our tomorrow, and the yough today isn't good enough for the tomorrow we are going to leave them but...
Youth is strong. EVERY generation worried about their children. OUR parents worried about us. THEIR parents worried about them, and so on so forth all the way back to the very beginning of humanity.
Yet here we are, and here the world is. It is not our parents world, because they left us something different. But we grew, we changed, we adapted.
But we still worry about our children.
And they will worry about theirs.
