An Apathetic Generation

We couldn’t reach a debt agreement, so we raised the debt ceiling And we wonder why people are going bankrupt We watch as social security gets cut more and more And we wonder why younger people disrespect the elderly We take prayer out of school and make Christians into a joke And we wonder why kids are losing all morality Our television, movies and video games are getting more violent all the time And we wonder why our children are We can’t be bothered to get involved at our child’s school because we are too busy And we wonder why our kids don’t take school seriously We don’t have time to read to our children And we wonder why they don’t like books We see pollution, bullying, and homelessness, but we look away And we wonder why our children are apathetic.
Maybe we should look in the mirror?
