Swarming Youth in our Fair City

Posted on Sun, Sep 26, 2010 at 11:44 PM

Wish I had a magic wand... I would transport myself and all these bored disenfranchised swarming youth to various places on earth where there is starvation, disease, natural disasters and wars. Democratic Republic of Congo or Pakistan or Haiti would be good.

We would volunteer our time and energies to digging latrines, passing out basic food supplies, caring for dying babies, comforting their mothers, etc., (you get my drift). AND, due to the magic wand, not one of the precious children in my care would contract malaria or dengue fever, unlike the millions we would be attempting to assist... I would continue this exercise with my captive audience for at least 6 months at which time they would be returned to our fair city and I freakin' guarantee, there would be no more of this idea that the world owes them a damn thing and the swarmings would cease. Until the next group of bored, disenfranchised children decides to go wild... then I would simply break out my magic wand and repeat. —cntrygranny
