You and Your Social Responsibility

Adults often make the mistake of misjudging the up-and-coming generation. You often hear them say, "Young people are not serious: they do not really care." Or, "They have no sense of social or civic responsibility." Quite the reverse is true.

Glance around your college scene, for example, and you will find many young people searching for meaning and value in life, and often filled with an almost crusading zeal to remake the world. They have tremendous energies that beg to be put to use. They desire to play a significant part in the world about them. Maybe you feel this way yourself. This is evidence that you are closing the door on childhood and are moving from irresponsibility to responsibility, from decisions made by others to decisions made by yourself, from self-centeredness to social concern.
