The headlines of our youth

Scanning the news, the topic of our children plays upon the pages.  It would seem that the days of reading heartwarming stories of Little League teams overcoming the odds and winning their division finals have disappeared from news sources across our nation.  Is it possible that we no longer witness a sense of pride in our young peoples' accomplishments because our media and our nation no longer aspire to happiness and good tidings for today's youth?  Or is it because the adults who direct them have failed to help our youth generate positive stories?  Perhaps it is a combination of the two.

On any given day, in virtually any newspaper or news site, you can locate topics that reveal a nation with a very troubled population of young people.  What have we done to create this atrocious picture of our youth?  What have we adults done to bring headlines stating, 'Child Found Strangled, Suspect Recently Released Child Molester' or 'Prom Night Birth, Baby Found Dead in Girls Restroom'?  What is happening to our youth?

In the last few days, I have tracked numerous news sources.  Here are just a few stories I found: children murdered by parent, increased steroid usage by American girls, girlfriend forced by boyfriend's parents to have an abortion, child obesity problem, young girls obsessed with being model thin, teens increasingly feel the need to bring weapons to school for protection.  Why does the world of innocence appear to have been turned upside down?

Children gain knowledge and follow by example.  We as adults have been setting pitiful examples.  We have laws that govern each state and rules that have been established to protect the innocent, but we have too many judges, who play the role of judicial god, not upholding the laws to protect our children.  Thus our children have been laid out as sacrifices to be preyed upon by child molesters.  These sick—minded molesters are not being held accountable nor are they being prosecuted fully for the evil deeds they have committed.  Adults who touch children inappropriately should never be allowed near a child again (I believe anyone who hurts a child should be locked away forever).  If the laws of our land cannot protect the children from these hideous monsters, we have truly become a people who do not deserve the blessings of our youth.

Abortion activists like to fight for a woman's right to choose. To choose what? Killing their own child or not killing their own child.  All under the guise of, 'Abortions should be safe, legal, and rare...' (If it is a constitutional right, I have to ask, why should it be rare?) The denigration once again can be seen and felt by our youth.  When adults do not value human life from the moment of conception, then why would we expect a young person to be inconvenienced by her child? Becoming mind—numbed to the event of giving birth and throwing a newborn in the garbage can is based on the lesson that life isn't valuable...it's expendable.

Our youth have been left so unprotected by the responsible adults, that they can obtain an abortion without parental consent. (The only exception for non—parental notification should be in cases of parental abuse). A daughter under the age of 18 in some states can obtain full rights to kill her child without parental involvement or knowledge, but she has to have parental authorization to get her ears pierced until she reaches the age of 18.  What has this taught our youth?  A baby human is an inconvenience, so you can make an adult decision, but your ear lobes belong to mom and dad so you cannot poke a hole through them by your own free choice until you turn 18.  Think about that.

A parent killing his own flesh and blood is disgusting and sick.  If you are suffering from depression get some help, take a flippin' pill, would you?  Do not drown your children, for the love of all that is good.  If you are the mate of a depressed person, get them aid.  Do not be so proud as to let the demonic plague of depression reach a point that innocent blood lays dripping from your own hands. If you are in the middle of a custody battle, your children are not pawns in the game you have decided to play with your ex—spouse.  They are individuals with rights, and due process to live their lives fully protected from the insanity of those who use their anger at their spouses to kill their own children.  Our youth is watching our behavior and our interactions as adults.  What are your children seeing and hearing?

Our adult sports figures cannot seem to leave well enough alone either.  The mad drive to push ourselves beyond our human limits has driven many sports figures into the darkened realm of drug usage.  Steroids are the cure all to build false muscle and bulk...all for the 'love of the game.'  What game are we playing as adults, not only with ourselves but with our children as well?  Who is to be the example to our children of tomorrow?  Is it about the sport, or is it about how to abuse our bodies so we can smear the other team and take the trophy?  Lives have been lost due to steroid usage, what trophy is there in that?

Lastly, do our children not feel safe at school or (possibly anywhere else) anymore?  Could it be a culmination of all the above that makes them feel scared?  When the leaders of the insane asylum cannot control their own emotions, desires, and bodies, what emotional feeling is left to those who live in the asylum.  Have we left our children only angst? Are we offering rational thinking skills to be followed?  Are we showing compassion?  Are we demonstrating respect for all?  Have we as the adults illustrated that we are capable of leading and offering a safe haven for our youth to grow up in?  What have we exemplified? 

We adults need to stop the nonsense.  We are not the children, we are the leaders and framers of tomorrow's youth.  Our world depends on our ability to reign in the stupidity and hypocrisies we have been so freely demonstrating.  Our children of today and tomorrow deserve our best, not our left—overs. Adults must stop the confusion, our children are sitting in a pool of bewildered insensible muck, and many of our youth, if you look at today's headlines, are paying the ultimate price for our idiocy. They are paying with their lives.
