Joseph Holland, "A View of Broad Street, 1797"
Forget Family Values and
Fort Worth, Texas, 1998.
I see too many young
people who not only have no respect and kindness for others but for themselves
also. A lot of that is our generation's fault. They are not
being taught self
respect or the true meaning of life. I
feel society today has lost the values and morals we were raised with and
are misguiding our children. Many
have been left to grow up by themselves. They show no respect [because
they don't get respect themselves at home]. This makes it very hard for
the next generation to have "mentors." How
else do we expect the next generation to act when our generation is a "Me
First" generation? Me first and to heck with other's needs.
What I'm trying to
get across to the next generation is this: In
your heart there [truly] is respect and
love for yourself and others. Look
the world the next generation is
a kind and caring one.
Good luck across the
