Has anyone read this story before? It's short, but it raises a good point.

I thought for how long of my life I spent in anticipation, now I'm there and the glory isn't all so golden. Some could argue, but have they really found happiness? Wasted youth, don't you recall when we were younger and stronger? It seems we're more submissive the longer we wait, as it should be, no?

To the youth who read this, I implore you to be true to yourself and don't buy-into, or sell-out to the brainwashing. I think this point is unshakable.

Major question here though: To what end is the youth kept as a ward, slave or servant until adulthood? We have seen the means, how many of us have experienced it? I say it kills the spirit, the truly rebellious child has always shown the most potential, do not be so naive.

All thoughts please?
