I don’t envy Parents, these days. Their desire to protect their Children is hard to realize, in the scope of Day to Day living. They can’t be with them all of the time…nor would their children want Them to be. But, each time they leave home, there is the worry what their Children will encounter…how safe the World They’re sending them out into, is! We’ve left them a horrible legacy, (Us Baby-boomers). One that has put them in Terrible Jeopardy! I myself, have had cause to regret the Environment We created, as I’m sure have many from My Generation. Had We known back so many years ago, what Our actions would create; would We so readily have embraced Peace, Love, Groovy, and most Importantly..the battle against Establishment(?), (which is what they are paying for Now).
Would We have truly wanted to create this Hostile Environment that Our new Young leaders are forced to live in each day? I Don’t believe We would!! It’s so very hard to convey to them, what it was, that We were really fighting for…and why. *SIGH* And, Instead, We have created a World full of Anger, Depravity, Intolerance, and Dissent. As one who helped to create this, I am daily reminded, of how awry it all went! That being said, the damage is done! And, right now I want to apologize, to Every Young person who has been made Victim of the fallout of those poor decisions; Myself and others made!
They can still fix the things We broke. Indeed I am seeing a Growing trend of Young People with just such a desire! I beg that they will hold strong to those convictions. NEVER give up their Ideals. It may be a Long Hard road….but, at the end of the journey; there will be GREAT Reward. They will have a More Humane World….one connected by the ability to access Anyone, from Anywhere; through the World Wide Web! For the the first time in History, They will be able to rise above all forms of Rhetoric and Propaganda; to reach a Common goal. Perhaps even, one day, attaining “World Peace”. And at the very least, they could achieve a World where, “Their Children”, will feel Safe! They can create a Kinder, Understanding Earth, and make their own Legacy. This is “My Hope”, and moreover…this is what “THEY” Deserve!
