As much as we debate, share, acknowledge, and maintain our lives, I never really see anything about the children. With hunger, abuse both physical and mental, wars fought all over the world, we seem to over look what our world will be in 50 years.

With many countries currently involved in some sort of conflict, we are raising children in war torn countries, and reproducing hate, on an amazing scale. Kids that are hungry, sleeping on the ground, having their homes blown up, and given that all so important "____________ (add any name) is our enemy".

There is a massive amount of children today that are being abused, traded, bought and sold, over-worked, homeless and hungry all over the world, yet we continue to argue over the next potus, who will be the next false prophet, etc,.

We exploit children in foreign lands with commercials of for just $0.30 a day, we can feed little Juan here, when in fact the money is given to governments and the children never see a thing. We fight over abortion, yet those children that are alive, dont get the same picket signs and attention that are currently in the foster care system, and used for drug trails, are abused, and mostly get sent to homes where the people are after their hefty checks.

We bombard our children today with disney, sex on every channel, and violence that most adults cant handle. We ship them off for 8 hours a day, and then wonder why they need help with homework when they spent a full work day at school, surrounded by teachers. Knowing that if you went to your job for 12 years, 8 hours a day, your job is now a career.

We have now given all birth rights to the government, schools, television, ad agencies, movie theaters, and video games, and decided that our children do not need us, they need to try to fit in at all costs. Look like their 17 when they are actually 10, that girls are drama queens, and boys just need to avoid women, because they are all drama queens, talking things our is for prissy boys, and men just want a nice cold beer, a night with his buds, and a quick lay.

Until we can get our future together then the present, means less then the past, and the past is all we have left.

Peace, NRE.

SnF for another entry.

You've stated things succinctly. It ALMOST made me want to shed a tear for the lack of empathy in today's society.

I guess that's what these writing contests are all about, to draw out the inner emotions we don't normally express freely. You've nailed an issue directly on the head of it. Kudos.

There's nothing short about this story.

I've read about a dozen stories and have about a dozen left to go but you are the first I've given a s+f, raw, well written & I could relate to everything you were saying & your perspective on things, very true, apt.
