Teenagers , beware of FAKE character at large.....

Lola  Knowing that there seems to be no such thing as virtue or respect among a younger audience and so many are either on drugs, selling drugs or dropping out and not receiving a full education or they grow up in gang violence or simply because of the messed up economy. How would you predict the future for teens of today? In my opinion, in our era (I'm 17-Female) things will become much more difficult. We will struggle and there will be more negativity among us than that of our days as teenagers. I understand that we are the future. But with so many teenagers going through the things we do today,what do you predict our future would be like tomorrow. In other words, do you believe in "Children are the Future"?

Argarna  Same thing's were happening in the 70's look how punk started. The only difference is now people are more apathetic to do anything to change there world and just accept what they're given... yay

 NativePride16 Actually your not thinking of the big scheme of things, it's there parents fault for moving them into bad neighborhoods or leaving a 6 pack in the fridge while your teenager is alone at home. Also just think if we do have a president who smokes weed. There will be no more war with any country cause they will just say "Hey let's just have a smoke, buy us some arab women, and forget we were even in war together hmmm?"
So actually there would be more peace.

Excerpts from  Yahoo Answers 

That's a huge topic - 'bout fake character . About what is 'fun' or what is 'right'  and 'wrong'. What is 'good' or 'bad' ? The truth is you don't become  good or bad on your own ,i.e a life left to whim and fancy or left to yourself.Neither will society mould you into a 'good' person.Or peer pressures for that matter .Or drifting in and out of seasons in your life as you experiment with whatever lifestyle or belief choices you make  based on what you've come across or crossed into your paths through someone.The truth is you own your life and inherent in that there is the responsibility for you to live it.You are responsible for the roads you take and the turn offs you make.You are responsible for what you make of yourself - I don't mean just becoming a tycoon or getting known for all the wrong reasons.You don't have to be a victim.You don't have to grope for the paths of life.Above all you don't have to be abused by every kind of a person.Life is too precious to throw it awayor at everyone's feet.You don't have to take antidepressants to pull yourself through your day.Neither blow  yourself up with alcohol or drugs.It doesn't matter if you 've made yourself or your life a puff of smoke or a pile of ashes. What will matter is starting today you can build REAL CHARACTER instead of sheepishly following it's 'sister'. So what is it ? [ Remember I teach teenagers in a high school and I've seen scores upon scores of teenagers who are if I may use the word a bit negatively 'victims'of what was lacking in their upbringing  as well as out of my own involvement in their troubled lives.....]

"Much of life is a moral and spiritual journey,and it makes no sense to send young people forth on such a journey having offered them only some timid,vacillating opinions about proper conduct . We must give our children better equipment than that.We must offer them unequivocal,reliable standards of right and wrong , noble and base,just and unjust.We must treat life as a moral endeavour." [William J.Bennet:The Moral Compass] 


1. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
2.   Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven  

3.   Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy   

      God in vain.
4.   Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
5.   Honour thy father and thy mother.
6.   Thou shalt not kill.
7.   Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8.   Thou shalt not steal.
9.   Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
10. Thou shalt not covet.

Found in Exodus 20:1-17, and also in Deuteronomy 5:6-21

CHARACTER is what makes you -[ a fake b-r-e-a-k-s you ] - brands you and establishes you as a teenager of note . Go celebrate life but remember years do fly away.
