Do not undermine American youth

Regarding the article by the Rev. David Hegg "What is happening to the U.S.?" (May 26): To write negatively about the young American generation is very unfair, and untrue.

We read about the young American generation risking their lives to save others. They join the American forces to protect the country and excel at colleges and universities.

The "empty-self" Americas are the very few. We know that it is in the order of creation that "empty-self" people have existed throughout history.

Some are born with nervous disorders, unbalanced personalities and mental deficiencies. But the majority of people, old or young, are people with honor, integrity and respect for mankind and to the living God.

The article is sadly negative and does not represent the young majority.

What is happening in the U.S. is a youth trend for generosity to support hospitals, help victims of natural disasters, feed the hungry, treat the sick, live the American spirit and support underdeveloped countries to form democratic governments.

It hurts, to a certain extent, to read that the U.S. started to expect less from few young people when the majority live with no limits to be proud, brave, giving, sharing and full of optimism.

If the intention of the article is to direct and help the young who are not in conformity with the American culture, using encouraging and optimistic remarks can be proved to be more effective and raise the bar.

The great quality of the American young should not be undermined.
