It disgust me that the youth in this area have no respect for anything. I can't blame the youth fully, but I CAN put half the blame on the parenting skills of some people. I remember back in the day, if I got suspended from school, my ass was grass..lol..Nowadays, these kids traet suspension like vacation. I got suspended one time in the 8th grade, and never again. he drug use among the youth is ridiculous. When I was young, the only thing we had to worry about was sneaking a beer here and there and smoking ciggaretts..We may have run into the occasional "Mary Jane" circle, but it wasn't as atrocious as it is now. Nowadays, kids do Ex, Coke, Prescription Drugs, Higher Grade Marijuana, Hard liquor...You get the picture. I often ponder on what is this next generation gonna be like. The respect level they have is already inches from hell. I do my best to teach my son the way I was taught. Respect elders, Pray, and work hard..Just my thoughts at the moment..
