Its nothing acomplishing (that I'm an avid reader), but its because they don't realize that books are like air to me. I'm dissappointed in the youth of today because older people keep saying we are the future. Quite frankly, that scares me. Kids these days have no idea who people like Plato, Steinbeck, Dante, Socrates, Salinger, and so many more wonderful authors are, and they could care less. Its a frightening idea to behold.
I pity those who are governed by children from my generation.
My Goodness - I never would have guessed how young you are from your previous posts! Until joining this site I had felt as you do now about today's youth and the scary prospect of their being our "future." But now, please give yourself a big pat on the back because you have just proven that all hope is not lost! Knowing there are youth like you (and some others on this site), who will be stepping into society's leadership roles soon gives me great hope for the future. Please keep up the great work - all of you!
