The Youth of Today

There are times when I wonder whether the world is going crazy and what the future holds for us when there is so much greed and hatred about. You read so many terrible things about the youth of today in particular, what with knife crime and bullying at school, being spoiled with ipods, laptops and computer games. You wonder where it will all lead.

And then you see these two gorgeous fresh-faced youngsters full of talent and somehow you know everything's gonna be all right.

There's too much rubbish on our streets these days, trying to take over the world. Unfortunately, it is the minority that spoil it for the rest.

Still having 2 little children (as well as 5 grown up ones), I come in contact with the younger generation on a very frequent basis. I see the anticipation, hope, and wonder that only the young can have. And I know, with absolute certainty, that these young ones have lots of good things to offer the world.

And when I look around me and see who is really making a mess of the world, I notice that it is predominantly middle aged and elderly men - whether in Myanmar (Burma), Pakistan, Iraq, the worldwide banking industry, Venezuela, Afganistan or Westminster! Let's face it, the youth of today cannot do much worse!

Working with teenagers I know there are plenty of good ones out there. Don't let the hoodies spoil your view of young people. Though how we change the lives of these disaffected youngsters, I don't know.

The kids around our way are getting out of hand. They never used to be a problem but it seems like they have hit that age. I've had to chase some out of our home- nothing scares them. The girl next door was feeding her 3 week old daughter yesterday and a couple of little clowns threw a stone at her window. You get the police around and they shrug their shoulders. Without deterent I can't see how it will get any better. They are not all like that but there are enough of them.

All the best

I agree Rosiero - we cannot ignore all the awful things that happen but it is refreshing to see that there is so much that is good. A x
