No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
You kids don’t know how good you have it.
like some of the commenters on this article, i, too, thought the letter was signed “lou pearlman”. man, these boyband fans today don’t even know. THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW.
and this is not to say that i haven’t gotten sucked back into the boyband thing, because i have, even at my very advanced age. and though i initially gave them a hard time about their lack of choreography, you’ll find me screeching along to ‘best song ever’ whenever it comes on the radio (one direction, zero shame!). i’m just saying the young fans today are DOING IT ALL WRONG. but i’ll save that rant for another time.

i’m actually impressed with a lot of these (except for the ones who labeled alaska as hawaii. c’mon now, there’s no excuse for that). i also got a lot of laughs out of the americans trying to label europe, took me back to my days in 20th European History class where i, of course, rocked all the map quizzes—no easy feat considering how often those maps changed. (and for some reason i found it hilarious how apologetic we were about it all: “SORRY FOR OUR IGNORANCE” scrawled across eastern europe was one of my favorites)
somebody tell me where i can get these shoes, THANKS
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
