Adults think they know all
the answers... But they don't.

To whom it may concern,
Did you ever think about what your children did? Do you ever
look back and say, "yeah I did that too."? You can't
go and blame everybody else for the youth today, because you
help make it that way too.
You talk about teen parents. But do you really know how hard
it is to juggle school, work, a baby, and still have enough money
to pay for rent. Not all teens that became pregnant wanted to,
and they became parents because they had morals of their own.
Morals like "Abortion is wrong." "I made a mistake
and now I am paying for it.", etc. And did you ever notice
they say "I made a mistake, I am paying for it, but I would

pregnant, she was a senior and she went through so much. Kids
talked about her behind her back, called her names, threw things
at her. But she kept her head up high. She knew that she was
doing the right thing by keeping that child.

you put on your children, maybe that is why kids today are doing
"bad things". It's called WANTING ATTENTION!

story. That is why our society sucks. That is why you think you
know what is wrong with today's youth. You see the picture on
the outside, but you never take time to look into someone's eyes....
which happen to be the window to most people's souls.
