YouTube Tuesday: I figured it out

At least, Craig Ferguson has part of it figured out.

What he's missing is the complicity that our nation's parents have played and are playing in contributing to the cultural worship of youth and stupidity. As parents, it's up to us to make sure that our kids learn the hard lessons in life: That you don't always win, that bad things happen to good people, that there will be times when you don't feel good about yourself but what's important is not how you feel at the moment but how you react and what you decide to do about it, that when you treat others badly you're harming yourself and when you are good to others you enrich yourself.

I don't know if there's any hope for our culture. It's hard to find evidence that there is. But if there is hope, it must include us teaching our progeny to be self sufficient and emotionally mature.
