Just Grow Up Already: Awesome And Motivational Words - PInterest of All Places

I saw this on my friend's Facebook page and I googled and found this Pinterest link good enough.  It's from a youth judge to teens about what they ought to be doing with their lives.  I think it applies so not just our youth but also to me, people who yet to grow up.

In case you're having trouble reading it, here is what the judge said:

Always we hear the cry from teenagers:  "What can we do, where can we go?"
My answer is this:  "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 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, grown up, stop being a cry baby, 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.
