I don’t know how many people consider the future and while considering include the youth. Our children are “The Future” if we don’t make preparations for the children then we will be a fix. Their future could include, doctors, lawyers, athletes and perhaps entertainers. We must help ourselves and it’s important that we help them as well. If we’re not including them when we’re preparing for what’s ahead of us then we’re doing disservice.
People may turn away from anything that has to do with youth because of what they’ve been told or shown. The violence that surrounds them could detour people away from trying to assist them in anyway. It’s important that we get to core of why they’re so angry. If we find those solutions then we will see a brighter future for youth and for their elders. Parents will age, family members will age, the youth continue to grow but what will they grow into? If we disconnect from them then we will lose them and the future could be bleak.
We don’t need anymore hotheads. We need some kind, compassionate, and hardworking young men and women who will pave the way for others. Some may think that those on the wrong path can’t be turned around. Yes, they can but it will take some work, and a lot of times a whole lot of work. For one we must come up with recreational centers or mentoring programs that target the root problem. Why are so many of our youth becoming statistics. Dr. Narramore states; “You simply do not commit murder unless you are bitter, angry, and resentful. Children and teenagers who kill have been living with rage for years.” If our youth are angry then we need to find out why they’re so angry.
Prevention is a great way to head what could be a problem for society later. If we don’t consider this then our neighborhoods will be ravished with violence. In order for us to enjoy a brighter future we must tackle the issues that our youth are having. We won’t be able to live in comfort or invest when we’ll have to use the money to get them out of legal trouble. So many youth have lost their lives and so many of them had bright futures. We must make time for them and supply them with riveting information.
We have to try to prevent incidents like the three teens being charged as adults for killing a 17 year old teen in Florida. Not only did a teenager lose his life but the three teens involved no longer have a future. Their home will be in a prison. Could their actions been prevented? Possibly. There’s a big possibility that their actions could have been prevented. So this is why it’s so important that we find avenues that will make our children want to go in the right direction. For some it’s sports and for others it could be music. “The Youth are our Future and we Must Protect the Future.”
