What teenagers can do
A speech to students by a judge in Colorado back in 1959, still applies in my opinion. I don't think too many kids actually took his advise though


“Always we hear the cry from teenagers ‘What can we do, where can we go?’

… My answer is, Go home, mow the lawn, wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study your lessons, and after you’ve finished, read a book.

Your town does not owe you recreational facilities and your parents do not owe you fun. The world does not owe you a living, you owe the world something. You owe it your time, energy and talent so that no one will be at war, in poverty or sick and lonely again.

In other words, grow up, stop being a crybaby, get out of your dream world and develop a backbone, not a wishbone. Start behaving like a responsible person. You are important and you are needed. It’s too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday.

Someday is now and that somebody is you.”
