Don't Believe The Hype

I'm at Redeemer University College today on behalf of World Vision and I just need to say that, despite all of the terrible things you hear in the news about teens and young adults, I can't say enough good things about how great these kids are. I've heard story after story about their involvement in fundraising, child sponsorship, their concern for the poor, and their commitment to justice. Frankly these kids are way ahead of where I was back when I was 19 or 20.

And it's not just the nice Christian kids at this school either. Teens from high schools all over the country are pumped about the 30-Hour Famine and supporting humanitarian causes of all kinds. If you're one of those "kids these days" curmudgeons, I suggest you talk to some of these kids. Sure, there are bad things going on, but for the most part today's teens give me hope for a bright future.
