Teenagers call to action

Not so much a blog, more of a quote. Get your kids, grandkids, nephews and nieces to read it...do-something-make-your-life-count

"Always we hear the cry from teenagers, “Where can we go, what can we do?”

"My answer is this: go home, mow the lawn, wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study your lessons and after you’ve finished, read a book.

"Your town does not owe you recreational facilities and your parents do not owe you fun. The world does not owe you a living. You owe the world something. You owe it your time, energy and talent…

"In other words, grow-up, stop being a cry baby, get out of your dream world and develop a backbone instead of a wishbone. Start behaving like a responsible person. You are important and you are needed. It’s too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something, someday. Someday is now and that somebody is you."teenagers

And then ask them what it means.
