Well, it is a sad fact, but most of todays youth have completely
different values, roll models, and a completely different upbringing
than a generation ago. We all grow up trying to follow in the
footsteps of someone we greatly admire, and if that person is a
dirtbag we might think that is cool and emulate his/her attitudes.
Here is a case in point.
When I was growing up I greatly admired Princess Diana, because behind
all the fame, being a royal princess, and all that you can tell she
was a real human being. Not some stuck up rich snob. She dedicated a
lot of time and energy into humanitarian efforts, and visited people
far below her station. The fact that millions of people world wide
came to her funeral is a testament of how greatly admired the woman
was, and how deeply she was able to touch people emotionally. That is
in my opinion a great example of a roll model. She wasn't perfect,
but she did manage to leave behind a legacy that we should all treat
others with respect, with love, and compassion no matter how rich or
poor they may be. At least that's what I got out of her life's legacy.
Now, compare her with someone today like Britney Spears. Britney
Spears is definitely not someone I'd want my kids to admire and use as
a roll model. She has been in and out of drug rehab, had a couple
quicky mariages and devorces, threw beer bottles at the cops in a
drunken rage when they tried to take her kids to see their father,
dresses up like a tramp, and so on. Not the kind of behavior we want
our children to grow up emulating that's for sure.
Bottom line, I think that these kids probably don't have the best roll
models and parental guidence in their lives. Someone to teach them the
value of compassion, understanding, and to treat others with respect.
In other words they haven't been taught the golden rule to do unto
others as you would have them do unto you.
