I'm sure I'm not the only person my age that is looking around, wondering the same thing. This once great, once Christian nation has gone downhill so fast that to compare it's decline to an avalanche would not be doing it justice. Things that were once permissible are now prohibited and punishable to the full etent of the law, while things that were considered taboo are now being practised openly and some are even taught in our public schools.
For ninteen years I have been told that children are the future of our nation. But what do we, as the future generations, have to follow as role models and heroes? We have actors, actresses, singers, and models to look up to. But what kind of examples are they? Do you really want your sons addicted to various drugs because "It's the cool thing to do" or "Everybody's doin' it"? Would you want your daughters to be viewed inappropriately by millions or people or pedophiles?
As a nineteen year-old, I am becoming increasingly alarmed at the rate of under-age, single mothers, abortions, molestations, and kidnappings. All around me are kids my age who are already raising toddlers, or are hooked on drugs. But who can really blame them when they have such poor examples to follow?
If you are concerned about YOUR future, IT'S NOT TOO LATE!! We are the future. We have the power to shape the next generation. We are responsible to provide reliable and authentic role models for our children and grandchildren. We have the ability to give them the hope of a much brighter future. We have the ability and the responsibility to mold this nation into a great nation once again. But to do this, we have to wake up and realize that yesterday is gone, tomorrow may never come, but WE are the future.
