Words for teenagers
"Northland College Principal John Tapene has offered the following words from a judge who regularly deals with youth:
'Always we hear the cry from teenagers "What can we do, where can we go?"
'My answer is this: Go home, mow the lawn, wash the windows, learn to
cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study your lessons, and
after you've finished, read a book. Your town does not owe you
recreational facilities and your parents do not owe you fun.
'The world does not owe you a living, you owe the world something.
You owe it your time, energy and talent so that no one will be at war,
in sickness and 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 responsible person. You are important, you are
It's too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do
something someday. Someday is now and that somebody is you!' "
