This sorry generation??

Memorable car of the day:

                                           1957 Chrysler Diablo (concept car)                             For today:    

There are some things I really believe in. Whether you do or not, I believe in the youth of today.  Every older generation I have known has said about the youth, “These kids are going to hell in a handbasket.” I heard that when I was a teen. I remember liking Rock & Roll. When those crazy boys from the UK came over, singing, ‘Love me Do‘ and ‘I want to hold Your Hand’, hey they were great. (I laugh at the term long hair for back then)

(They were called long haired hippies!)

I know some great kids of the day. Some are our Grand kids, and some are our great grand kids. I bet some of you have some good kids and great grandkids. Yes they do spend a lot of time of a phone or actually a ‘device’, LOL.

There have always been kids in the gutter, crooks and thieves. BUT there has always been more that wanted a good job and a family. There is a lot I don’t like about ‘this day & time.’  BUT my parents and their peers didn’t like a lot that was going on in ‘their day.’

WE have millions of hard charging ‘kids’ that want to be Doctors, Nurses, Soldiers, sailors, bankers, farmers, priests, preachers, Pilots, etc, you name it we have those studying to be the best. There will be great Engineers, Astronauts and scientists come from this group. We have young people who will grow to discover cures to help us live and age well. I trust ‘em.

Shucks our own grand kids have some of the best of work ethics I know. They put their shoulder to the wheel every day, I am proud of them.

When I hear someone say, “The kids today aren’t worth a s==t”, I think, ‘Does that include your family?’

Let’s give ‘em a chance, someone gave this 'sorry kid' a chance.

These  politicians of every shade, side (Right, Left or wrong), color and size will all die away, BUT there will be people who love our country and are here to stay. 

There are some good kids working today and in colleges and HS. Lets give ‘em a chance.

You make a good point, Jack. A real good point. Unfortunately, my "the glass is half empty" husband is one of those who paint the younger generation with too wide a paint brush. Proud of MY grandchildren, too.

Like Mevely said, you make a good point Jack. A good one. However, the kids of today are not good at music. You can't improve on the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Monkees, Beach Boys, Roy Orbison and Presley ... need I say more? The music of today is good for headaches.

God bless.

I remember my grand parents and parents complaining about kids. I do not complain about kids much as I had one myself. They all get mischief and do things they shouldn’t. Thats part of growing up. Thats how they learn. Some grow up to be lazy, some grow up to be millionaires. My parents always taught us the importance of a job. Not a single person in my family is on welfare thought we struggle…a lot. My daughter grew up the same way. I have always said “kids are not bad, they are just misunderstood.”

Oh yes, there are some good kids left. Mine children all work hard for what they have. The didn't have anything handed to them. They have good work ethics too.
