As I bring this forward for discussion, I'm organizing a baby boomers for a writers class within my church and it is my hope we can affect change with well written proposals such as: "mandatory civic duty" specifically, mentorship for all children and teenagers.
First, let me clarify what "mandatory civic duty" means. As US citizens, has to (by law) perform 2 civic duties; jury duty and taxes. That's it folks! Understand, you don't have to become politician, you don't have to vote and you don't have to join the military. If you don't do those things, you won't summand, fined, or jailed. The point is, we need to mobilize the armies within our communities for role models to give hope to many children who have a bleak outlook of the world and the future.
You see, too many people practice Nepotism, passing down knowledge only to their children and race. And, of course, racism still exists. But I say put the hatred aside; the buzz words are cross cultural, Democrats and Republicans not arguing, and helping a worthy political issue most people can believe in.
Don't call it a utopia - but a mobilization of an Army, who wants to battle for the hearts of their neighbor's child, so that there child can have like-minded, better friends who understand each other.
