Today was a quiet Sunday. I decided to call the grandkids to remind them I love them. Out of curiosity I asked if they would play a guessing game with me. I said, "I will say a word or two and you tell me what you think it is". The kids were ages 14 and 16. Below are the questions and some of the answers. I got a sick headache after I hung up the phone. I did find their answers amusing on one hand but on the other hand...for some reason I really needed to cry.

The Questions.

1. Illuminati
3.Veri chip
4.G20 Summit
5. Nephilium
6.MK Ultra
7. Freemason

The answers.

1. A rock group
2.a rock group
3. like a healthy potatoe chip or something
4.I think its a basecamp
5.some sort of medicine
6. a video game for xbox
7. one of those people who helps build houses for the poor

I understand where you're coming from in the sense that the worldly awareness of children (and many adults) is inexorably stunted. But give them a little bit of a break. Honestly, I wouldn't have been able to define those terms in much more detail until I was 20. If they want the knowledge, they'll seek it themselves. If not I would think you should accept that as a choice of their own. If you want to guide them in that direction, help by trying to pique their interest in such subjects. Crying isn't constructive
