“The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day —Albert Einstein
This is a formal announcement to all those doubters out there who publicly and wrongly announce that youth today are lazy, unambitious, delinquent, irresponsible and just plain untrustworthy.
It is essentially an old wives tale based on the actions of a few bad apples who have made the headlines with their ostentacious antics and bad behaviors.
The truth of the matter lies in the fact that given a reasonable chance to succeed and sincere encouragement a significant number of our young people crave the opportunity to find their place in the sun.
The young man in this photo caught my attention as well as that of a number of passersby as he sat by that tree reading his text book and quietly enjoying his lunch. He had succeeded in mentally tuning out the world around himself and zeroed in on the contents of his textbook.
This outward display of determination and grit proves to all those naysayers that their general opinions about today’s youth is pure bunkum. He is a shining example of the way in which youth today are able to focus their minds on improving themselves and contributing to society.
