I think it's really important that we get to guide the youth today into understanding what's really going on in the world and start to geniunely care. Make them drop their PSPs or Nintendo DS for a bit (haha). And it doesn't even have to be some big social issue. It can start by teaching them that the world doesn't need another hater, grinch, racist, it needs people who can love, make other people happy, unite and appreciate our differences. Am I being too idealistic?
I'm starting with my girls. Who knows, one of them could be a great leader some day. All they need is your time, and tho it doesn't cost anything, it's the hardest and best thing you can give.
These are my kids! I know, I look like a kid myself.
I'll leave it to you guys to figure out where I am!
