The immature youth demand kindness as an entitlement. The digital era seems to have exacerbated their selfishness.

They see the whole world as theirs own right... Isn't it great, if not right?

I completely agree with the quote. The sad thing is, we have adults that think the exact same way as kids do. Adults; meaning childish grown-ups!

My thoughts exactly, Jim. Welcome to the Forum.

Equality is when you see a person - not a label.

Chapter XII


My promise to Roy sent my thoughts back to my first years in London. Having nothing much to do that afternoon, it occurred to me to stroll along and have a cup of tea with my old landlady. Mrs. Hudson’s name had been given to me by the secretary of the medical school at St. Luke’s when, a callow youth just arrived in town, I was looking for lodgings. She had a house in Vincent Square. I lived there for five years, in two rooms on the ground floor, and over me on the drawing- room floor lived a master at Westminster School. I paid a pound a week for my rooms and he paid twenty-five shillings.
Mrs. Hudson was a little, active, bustling woman, with a sallow face, a large aquiline nose, and the brightest, the most vivacious, black eyes that I ever saw. She had a great deal of very dark hair, in the afternoons and all day on Sunday arranged in a fringe on the forehead with a bun at the nape of the neck as you may see in old photographs of the Jersey Lily. She had a heart of gold (though I did not know it them, for When you are young you take the kindness people show you as your right.) and she was an excellent cook,

The younger generation today is constantly told that they are "special" snowflakes, each and every snowflake is different and has unique qualities and therefore requires the upmost respect and praise from all surrounding peoples. But what the "snowflake" fails to acknowledge is the shear fact of respect is given when you respect others, not scoff at them for their different values or different qualities. You don't have to understand them, you just have to respect them for the same way you respect yourself. After all, everyone's a special snowflake, right?
