We hear lots of negative comments on the teenagers, but I for one think we should focus on all those young people who have direction and energy to enhance our world. Boys and girls alike are pursuing activities that make us proud to watch, help organize and appreciate.
From Karate(or other sports) to organizing swimming days in the winter, to taking part in theater productions, signing up for Gould Lake Outreach summer programmes, to weekly lessons in dance or gymnastics these young people have direction adults could envy.
The excel at school are interested in protecting the environment and are willing to share their time for causes such as Heart and Stroke. They don't look for praise-they just get involved and do their part.
My pleasure to watch them grow and learn.
