A Wisconsin college administrator was recently enlightened by a judge, who regularly deals w/youth, on an answer to a common complaint. How many times have YOU heard this come from your young adult, “What can we do? Where can we go?”
The answer the judge gives? Classic.
He tells them, “Go home, mow the lawn, wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study, and after you’ve finished-read a book. Your town does not owe you recreational facilities and your parents do not owe you fun.
Furthermore, the world does owe you a living, you owe the world something. You owe it your time, your energy, and your talent so that no one will be at war, in sickness, or lonely again.
In other words, grow up, stop being a cry baby, get out of your dream world and develop a backbone, not a wishbone. Start behaving like a repsonsible 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!”
