"Because our society has become so focused on greed and what is best for the individual rather than for others, because we have focused only on what we desire rather than looking for the good of all, that we have effectively begun a campaign of destruction of an entire generation of children. We have abandoned them, left them with no guidance, no acceptance. All we have provided them is the aftermath of our own fauly decisions. We have made our children frustrated and angry. This anger has become rage. It is no wonder that we see a rise in anti-social behaviors, for they are the product of this rage which we have created ourselves. In early childhood, children think little of whether one is black or white, Jew or Christian, or whatever. Over time, they learn to establish barriers between others, because they have learned this from us. Sadly, I would say by the age of 10, we have indoctrinated our children. If what we have modeled is faulty, it will be very hard for them to unlearn. Vicious cycles will sadly continue. Hope often appears dim in a society as we have, but I do believe that buried within in of us lies potential, a potential for benevolence, a potential for change, a potential to re-create ourselves, re-create our world, and ultimately to turn away from the destructive course we are choosing to head at present."
