I was a lucky child. I had parents that set good examples for me. I had grandparents that set good examples for me. I'm not saying they were perfect people; they made mistakes and learned from them. They worked hard and treated others with respect. And all that I strive to do as well.
I fear that kids today don't always have good examples to follow. More and more kids are looking up to celebrities. With the likes of Lindsay Lohan running around I fear the human race may be doomed. I'm sorry but I fail to see how a girl who has had several run-ins with the law, should be serving tons of jail time, has drug issues, and has recently turned to thievery (because she obviously doesn't have a dime to her name - maybe because she spent it all on lawyers and drugs?), should be allowed face time on the evening news. Or allowed to be a role model for today's youth.
Okay, should could be the new poster child for what drugs and alcohol will do to you. That whole egg in the frying pan and "this is your brain on drugs" is so last century.
While we all dream of fame and fortune at some point while growing up, I'm quite glad I'm a nobody so that the paparazzi don't follow my every move. The paparazzi would likely push me over the edge.
