I think I need sometime to digest it, since this generation is so different from mine. They are deep but at the same time superficial. they are very sad, even the ones that tried to say they are not.

what bothers me, about this generation , which is not at all their fault, is how they are trying to look western,and the amount of make up and plastic surgery is an indication of running away from who they really are.

Overall they are good kids,and I feel sorry for them, they are paying price for something that their parents did!

Thanks again ,very informative.
