when you’re young it’s all about being young. It’s a time in your life where you probably make the most mistakes and the best decisions.Your parents are not in your world and you’re not in your parents world.Your room is the bunker and you are immortal. Old age can’t touch you. It’s too far away.The clock has stopped on young.
I’ve seen 3 generations of young people.My folks who were part of the Greatest Generation were the first.
They fought in World War II.They survived the Great Depression. They didn’t know what it was to own a credit card.All they had they waited for;and that included saving themselves for marriage.
I’m sure they were just as idealistic as most young people are-and energetic- but they had a lot of tough realities to face including saving their country.The American people survived by holding onto the traditional values that made our country great.
Then there was our generation.Handed everything our parents didn’t have.We were also idealistic and energetic but we had no hardships to face. We protested a war because we were too self centered to understand what our brothers and sisters were fighting for.
Youth has a tendency to be self centered but when we’re called to a purpose higher than ourselves we can answer.We had no higher purpose.We were singing the songs of a utopia that didn’t exist(IMAGINE NOTHING)& lost our way.The one good thing that came out of that generation was the Civil Rights Movement and a heroic leader by the name of Rev Martin Luther King Jr. Honestly,it was the ONLY good thing.
Now we have a new generation.Bright,energetic and idealistic. They’re called Millennials. The fact remains we all become older.Youth doesn’t last as long as we imagine it does.Sometimes when you’re older you look at the new generation and wish you had that vitality again. I don’t look back with envy. I just wish i had known then what i’ve learned the hard way over the years.
There is no fountain of youth. Crazy dreams don’t work in reality. Traditional values are timeless. Right is still right and wrong is still wrong.
Jane Eyre ~Charlotte Bronte. These things and deeds are diametrically-opposed: they are as distinct as is vice from virtue. Men too often confound them: they should not be confounded: appearance should not-be mistaken for truth; narrow human doctrines, that only tend to elate and magnify a few, should not-be substituted for the world redeeming creed of Christ. There is a difference; and it is a good, and-not a bad action to mark broadly& clearly the line of separation between them.
i can’t imagine anyone voting for Bernie Sanders anymore than i can imagine anyone voting for Hillary Clinton.It’s called Marxism people and it’s an ideology you don’t want to play with.It seems to me when you have a culture that doesn’t know the difference between vice and virtue you have people who will fall for almost anything.It seems we have 2 sets of young people today. The ones who will not vote at all. It isn’t important enough for them. (It will be one day). Then you have the ones who will vote for a Bernie Sanders because they have no idea what Marxism is.
