That is not true with most of the youth today, their heroes are in the sphere of the future, singing, and an electronic environment. Of course I would like to straighten them out and put them on the right road, but then they would probably end up with good morals but behind the rest in knowledge of the present world.
Every generation has looked at the rising generation and knew they were headed to hell in a hand basket, and I and my peers are no different. Unless we look around and say, this is their world now, we are gonna end up bitter and frustrated OLD PEOPLE because we are gonna live longer than our parents did, and see a lot more.
I wish I had the patience of my daddy and mama. Looking back I know they hated the ‘overall jacket’(I never could afford the leather jacket) and ‘T’ shirt. I had the skinny suede belts and wore my jeans low on my hips, we called it snake hips. I had a cool Ducks Tail, and loved my ‘Wild Root Cream Oil’. (I can hear that commercial that used play on the radio in my mind now): “
Get Wild Root Cream Oil Charlie,
It keeps your hair in trim,
It’s non alcoholic Charlie.
Its made with soothing lanolin.
Anyway James Dean, Elvis, the Beatles and the The Black Board Jungle set the older generations on fire. We were going to ruin the USA…. Now it is our turn, honestly we didn’t ruin the USA, but in our minds this next bunch is surely going to. (IN OUR LIMITED OPINION OF THE FUTURE).
I am trying to be realistic, I am fearful that this generation is the one that will sink the USA, BUT is that true? Are my grandkids and your grandkids that bad? NO THEY ARE NOT, I WILL TRUST THIS COUNTRY TO MY GRANDKIDS, most of them are smarter than I.
HEY, I do not like the life styles of the youth, I do not like all their morals, but I am passing off the scene. At the most I have 15-20 years, God bless the kids they have 50-60 years, maybe more. I am going to trust them to do it right.
I am sorry, I do not like the style of church worship services today, in my humble opinion they ARE TOO LOUD. I don’t like all the tattoos, I do not like the piercing. But if they leave the alcohol excess off and drop the hard drugs, I can live with GREEN spiked hair and demolished jeans.
We still are a beautiful free in this country. If that is truly threatened, I know we have some young folk (backed by older believers) who will stand up for what is right.
I am not always happy with our countries leaders, but in the long run, we will be fine. I love this country, just as a citizen of the UK, Russia, Canada, Mexico and the other countries love theirs.
Elvis sang:The future looks bright ahead, don’t be cruel!……
