I don’t condemn where I come from, nor do I condemn the person I once was.
I am in a way relieved at some of the set backs I’ve had in life. They have made me a stronger person. Life is hard, difficult, but I will not fall, no I will not…
Just touching on the younger generation comment you made. Kids to day are being raised in a different way to what past generations were. An example – a friend of mine works in education. She said to one of her pupils, ‘Can you take lego back to mat, you’ll loose it in the sandpit.’ The child replied, ‘You are annoying me.’
I’m sorry but there is no way I would ever have spoken to a teacher like that. My friend told me it was normal behaviour – that children these days are told to speak up for themselves.
All I can say is, if all kids in the world grow up with that attitude, we are in for one hell of a bumpy ride.
