7. Those sorts of dispatches from the front lines do give me comfort.

I just hope there aren't too many youthful cynics out there.

Idealism is a wonderful trait of the young. Some keep it all their lives, others lose it as soon as they join "the daily grind." It saddens me when young people get all jaded and cynical--if they aren't convinced they can change the world when they are young, who's gonna actually do the changing when they are middle aged?
