About The Youth
Dear Mr. Editor:
Here is a letter I received and I thought you might like to |
read it. There's a lot in what the feller says.
1. D. Clare
Dear Mr. Clare:
1 've lived here in Murphy now for nearly a year and have
learned a lot about the citizens of Cheroke County, but there's
one big question that remains unanswered. "Where are the
youth at night time?" Now 1 realize that there is a scarcity of
young people in our county due to many obvious reasons but
there should still be more of them in sight at evening time. In
my opinion there are places for the kids to be and they
are; homes, highways and BY WAYS.
I'm afraid too many of the kids wind up on the "By |
Ways" such as local business establishments of questionable 1
character, "across the line" in adjoining states, or on the back 1
roads of their local communities. It seems to me that these |
conditions are no more attractive to the youth of our county 1
than the lack of a future in their local communities due to I
absence prospective employment. What we need is a "Youth 1
We have got to prepare them a place in the community
where they can go for fun, fellowship and good clean enjoy
ment. The youth of our times are mobile. They have the
use of Cars and telephones, therefore promoting the instinct of
Plan to go see and do and they will do ji?st that. That's where
the interested adults come into view. It is the responsibility
of parents and civic leaders to promote more recreation and
employment opportunities. Where are these people? Are they 1
asleep or blind to the fact that their future, leaders are de
tecting right before their eyes?
I know parents who have tantrums about the hopeless
youth or delinquents ot our area, but when they were asked
ft help in the ChUrth with the young people they invented
4 thousand other responsibilities they had, none of them being
|s important a^ the welfare of their own youngsters. Is this
not a twisted sense of value?
- Where are the loud-mouthed politicians and civic leaders
Who scream about improving the roads, less taxes, liquidation
ol <mm, etc. Who is responsible to the youth? Who is going
to take up the lead and promote worthwhile facilities for de
veloping our future leaders? There are too many opportunt
ties for you to say there is nothing for me to do. The first
thing to do is open your eyes, take an interest, and just see
What is going on around you. We took up arms to protect
our country from aggressors of all types. Are we going to set
on the side lines while our youth fight their battle toward
growing up and developing into worthwhile citizens and an
asset to our community and countrv.
