I think this is great! From what I can gather, this program teaches these future leaders about responsibility and government. What I love best is that it encourages them to learn about current events and develop public speaking tools that will only serve them well in the long run.
But he makes a very good point at the end:
"I could not help contrasting these boys with the sickening photograph in today's newspaper of a Palestinian teenager wearing a suicide bomber's vest. Clearly, we have it right, and they have it wrong.
Some things really are just that simple."
It is our responsibility to grow and develop our youth so that, when the time is right, they can step up and take responsibility. Unfortunately I don't think we always do such a good job at this.
Our children are the future. Not only should we focus on leaving this world a better place for them, but we should work just as hard to help them prepare for their time.
