This doesn’t suprise me at all. I know I sound like all of our parents: “Back in my day, we used to walk to school, ten miles, uphill both way!”
But maybe, just maybe, our parents were telling the truth.
The utter lack of reading and writing skills, logical capabilies and physical readiness are absolutely awful. A high ranking Army official stated recently that the physical fitness level of America’s youth will in all probability present a national security risk in 10 years. I don’t question this at all.
We’ve all but lost our youth. We pat ourselves on the back for expecting nothing from them, expecting them to mature “organically”. We’ve gotten from them just what we’ve required: Very little.
