So I just wanted to talk about kids these days.  A lot is said about how kids are worse than they ever have been.  You hear just about once a month of some depressed kid gone AWOL and shooting up his/her school and them killing themselves.  You hear old grannies yelling at kids driving too fast or how kids "back in the days" used to have manners.  Too much is said about the negative aspects on kids these days.

Let me go on record by saying that kids these days are better than they ever have been!  You can blame the media for the bad rap or you can blame the small few that ruin it for everyone else.  In the past few years, I've had the opportunity to work closely with many of today's youth, both through teaching seminary and bible studies and also at work.  They are smarter than ever, they are better prepared for real life than anyone in my graduating class, they cope with life's trials and afflictions like seasoned adults, and they are full of desire to serve God. 

Seminary was supposed to be cancelled today due to Rancho Bernardo High School being off for some "Teacher Development Day" or something.  Last week when I announced that Seminary was going to be cancelled on Monday, some of the kids asked if we could have Seminary anyways.  More and more jumped in and asked to have class.  I agreed to have class and told them they could invite anyone else who wanted to come.  We ended up having about 15 students show up today.  I don't know about you, but I can't imagine even one student wanting to willingly wake up for a religious class at 6 am on a Monday morning back when I was in high school.  

The youth today are filled with the Spirit of the Lord, they serve others, they support each other through hard times, they trust in God, they sacrifice their time and talents, and most importantly, they do all of this willingly!

I'll end this in the words of a wise woman "I believe the children are the future, teach them well and let them lead the way!"
