The next generation doesn’t have an easy time of it. The number of At Risk Youth is on the rise, Every year more than 700,000 children are abused or neglected, and each day 1,200 children are removed from their families to enter foster care. (American Institutes for Research). In 2000, more than 4 million youth between ages 16-24 were neither working nor in school and 25% are estimated to be parents. Each year, more than 20,000 teens leave the foster-care system with little transitional support. In 1997, 350,000 young men between the ages of 18-24 were inmates in federal and state prisons and local jails. The population of 16-24 year olds is expected to grow at an above-average rate over the next decade and most of the increase will be among blacks, Latinos, and young immigrants.
The fight to give these children a chance, some stability is also a major topic and more people are getting jobs, creating organizations, doing what they can to help the leaders of tomorrow. Tonight we have a special all male panel who will be talking about their experiences with at risk youth.
Trust is important, but it is also dangerous. It is important because it allows us to form relationships with others and to depend on others—for love, for advice, for help with our plumbing, or what have you—especially when we know that no outside force compels them to give us such things. But trust also involves the risk that people we trust will not pull through for us; for, if there were some guarantee that they would pull through, then we would have no need to trust them. In this context, trust is also dangerous. What we risk while trusting is the loss of the things that we entrust to others, including our self-respect, perhaps, which can be shattered by the betrayal of our trust. Tune in this week as Nancy Herold and I discuss how trusting requires: - that we be vulnerable to others (vulnerable to betrayal in particular); - that we think well of others, at least in certain domains; - and that we be optimistic that people are, or at least will be, competent in certain respects. Tonight’s show proposes that ‘at our core’ there is a trust that knows no mistakes, no victims, only lessons and growth. To have a reciprocal relationship with the world around us, trust is the lubricant. Listen in as we discuss that trust and love are the natural states for us to evolve.
