more hope for the future

thats what i told my wife she this weekend when i got home
thank goodness i said
after watching all the junk that happened last week in politics
mostly embarrassing to lots of folks no matter their party affiliation

thank goodness i said
after working with this youth group at habitat for humanity
thank goodness i said
there is more hope for the future

i can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that this generation
will be our leaders in the future
if we can just make it to their time

now of all the groups i have worked with
the ones i like the best are the youth groups
ive worked with groups from ft worth dallas ut austin
texas state southwestern several local high schools and middle schools
lots of church based groups and other youth groups

i guess ive been lucky
because all do such a good job
this weekend i had the privilege to work with two groups
a local girl scout group and a group from the
habitat for humanity club at rouse high school in leander texas
at least one person a former patient was involved with
both groups
included were a teacher sponsor parents troop leader
of course seeing these folks make me understand the good
role models these kids have

another kid a former patient is a special needs person
it was refreshing to see how well the other kids worked
with that person helping  redirecting the kid if needed
i saw no taunting no hazing no abuse
just well like this generation seems to have more of
than some of the generations above us
that is
tolerance and understanding

i saw or heard no complaining no religious or race or political
they just calmly went about doing their job that day
probably enjoying the outdoors and the comradeie of being
with their peers

i like to talk with each of them
find out what their future plans are what they are involved in
find out what colleges they plan to attend
much like i did when i was in practice

now some of these kids i have worked with many times over
the last two years
some more than once
i hope they like i did got something for working so hard that day
getting something
in their hearts and souls that will help make them a better
human being
so this is what it all looked like at the beginning
this is what it looks like now

what a great job they did

all i can say is
move over donald and hilary and bernie and ted
here comes a much better more tolerant generation
please save something for them
they are
after all
hope for the future
