It seems to me that I am meeting more and more young people from broken lives or families. I'm wondering if all this while, there have always been broken families and lives everywhere or has the world gotten worse?
Yet these young people still fight on to find meaning and stability in their lives. They still laugh and smile with their friends and classmates, never showing how much they are bleeding inside.
I suppose there is no point in railing against a cruel or unjust world... because they cannot change the outside elements or factors. They can only change how they respond to their experiences.
So far, the majority I meet have shown admirable resilience... although a few have the tendency to snarl and snap when people accidentally touch on sensitive topics.
What I do notice is how all of them find their anchor in God.
