I have some real problems with some of the younger generations. Our state is finding less hunting licenses being purchased along with fewer showing up for hunter training sessions .
A local "help the more needy" Christian youthministry, which builds ramps, fixes windows, plumbing etc. for older or handicapped folks, is having problems getting the youth to participate, where 8-10 years ago there were plenty of young volunteers.
Sorry, but I blame the new technology for much of the problem in most instances. Just look about, see how many are walking around with their phone in their hand!
They can't seem to put it down long enough to simply put it in their pocket !
They can't leave it alone when dining out..they can't walk down the street without becoming engrossed in their little 2.5" X 4" screen.
It doesn't look good....
