The Days Are Fleeting

In a culture that glorifies youth, it causes a lot of people who have more years behind them to probably think, “they have no idea how fast it goes.” Or “it seems like just yesterday that I was that age. .” And it is true; to the young, time may pass too slow. But once adult lives start, time passes quicker and before you know it, you’re 45 and approaching mid life. As we all know, our world is advancing fast in the realm of technology and Information. But at the same time we are neglecting to raise youth who are ready for the future. FDR once said that “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” In our youth is when we are taught the lessons  we take with us for the rest of our lives. Whether good, or bad. Youth is an impressionable time of one’s life. We were all 15 once. The days pass, and lives tend to get busy. We forget about things and people. But one thing we can’t forget is our origins, and how we will shape the future. It is entirely dependent upon us. Life is fragile and we are never guaranteed the next day.
