    How often do we sit around and actually decode the messages sent to us by the youth? I feel a lot of times, not just my generation, but the messages from the newborn souls are being missed, overlooked, and walked upon. Like a the proverb that people can't lie when they are drunk, most young children will tell someone the truth, whether the moms lipstick looks ridiculous or whatever it is.

    Babies many times come into the world as highly spiritual beings with many messages and lessons for the parents and world construct as a whole. They have fun with a penny, and are most of the time pretty happy. Sometimes they might even sneak in a magickal "trick" right quick if you look and watch closely.

    What about the teenage generation? What can the older ones learn from us? Learn from our emotions, our likes, and the things we are interested in? What can be learned from the new generation hating school and the drop out right plummaging? What about the rebellious spirit? Are there not messages in these different acts, maybe we should sit down and learn. Whatever happened to communal learning, learning from the young as well as the elders.

    What can be learned? Don't sleep on the youth.

    when a youth fails, it's always put down to personal problems
    but one cannot ignore the social system and the effects it can have
    on an individual
    it's all about the youth!

    It's all about the Youth
    the youth dem of today
    their role in this society, the part their gonna play

    It's all about the Youth
    the youth dem of today
    their future for tomorrow, they have to lead the way

    too much unemployment, to much violence and a crime
    too much of we youth are in a prison doing time
    not enough in a da colleges and universities
    not enough for them to do not enough activities......

    The message is loud and clear. We must listen not only to the children but to every aspect of the Creator that manifests itself in Nature. The rumbling Earth, the dying trees and animals, the chickens that make us sick, our own bodies. But we don't listen. We want someone to tell us everything we do is right And we try to train the children to believe that this is the only acceptable message. When we slap and beat and yell the truth out of a child we create an adult who can only slap and beat and yell when faced with truth.
