There’s a group of young boys, aged 12 to 14, who went off on a mugging spree in Central Park this morning. They stole an iPad and iPhone from two women and punched a man in the face when he refused to fork over his wallet.
12 and 14-year-olds!
And yesterday, I heard about another child in that same age range who belongs to a gang, deals drugs and ran away from his abusive home a week ago. He hasn’t been seen since.
I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again… WE ARE NOT DOING OUR YOUTH ANY GOOD with the subliminal and blatant messages we’re sending them through our parenting models, our educational system, our media or our politics.
So since we’re not doing them any good, and they’re the future of this country, you can better believe we’re not doing America any favors either.
