Today’s Youth


* Re Richard Natale’s June 17 letter about the tagger who jumped from the overpass: He said that it is frightening to imagine the youth of today leading our country tomorrow. How can he compare one kid to all of today’s youth? If I were to compare all adults to one person such as Timothy McVeigh, does this mean that all adults are going to get mad at something they don’t agree with and take matters into their own hands? Does this mean that adults aren’t good leaders because of one man’s crime?

As a 16-year-old and future leader of tomorrow, I think that Mr. Natale and many other adults should look not only at the kids who commit crimes, but also at the kids who are striving to make a better tomorrow for everyone.
