Amen .. There is a teaching concept, introduced about 25 to 30 years ago, 
being expanded and intensified each year since, that the young should 
NEVER be made to feel ashamed of their actions .. It lowers their self 
esteem .. Those youngsters, knowing no shame, regardless of their 
actions, carry that sense of "Anything Goes" into adulthood

I am in my twilight years .. And am very thankful to have lived in and 
with generations past, where only a VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE of the 
population had the "Take Care Of Number One .. ME" attitude that is so 
prevalent among a near majority today

Pity the nation when the youth of today become adults ..
