Trust in Youths to Do the Right Thing

Forget the gun bill or putting up the Ten Commandments. Listen to what the young man named Corey said about the exemplary behavior of young people at the inspired prom for residents of the L.A. Central Juvenile Hall ("A Night to Remember," June 22). He said, "They put their trust in us, and we were not going to disappoint them." That is the key, folks. Practice that.
