Do you often hear teenagers go- “What can we do, where can we go?”
Well, this judge working with youths has an answer for you. These are some serious words, inspiring us to use positively every moments we owe. Not only for teenagers but for everyone I believe. Please read through it and spread the message.
Below the answer to the teens asking, what can we do, where can we go? :
“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 have 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 and you are needed. It’s too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday. Someday is now and that somebody is you!”
Lets understand it, and action will automatically follow. Thank you for your time, that you owe the world and just used it to read something inspiring. Smiles..
