Have you seen these poor kids?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Robert Morein, Jul 30, 2004.

  1. I just spent several hours observing teenagers who were hanging out at
    our local mall. I came to the conclusion that many teenagers in America
    are living in poverty. Most of the young men I observed didn't even own
    a belt; there was not one among the whole group. But that wasn't the sad
    part. . . many of them were wearing their daddy's jeans. Some of these
    jeans were so big and baggy that they hung low on their hips, exposing
    their underwear. I know some of them must have been ashamed their daddy
    was short, because his jeans hardly went below their knees.

    They weren't even their daddies' good jeans, for most of them had holes
    ripped in the knees and had a dirty look to them. It grieved me that in
    a modern, affluent society like America, there are people who can't
    afford a decent pair of jeans. I have been thinking about asking my
    church to start a jeans drive for the "poor kids at the mall."

    Then on Christmas Eve, I could go Christmas caroling and distribute
    jeans to these poor teenagers. I don't think this group of guys had even
    had much to eat, because as they were walking, their heads leaned to one
    side as if they didn't have enough strength to keep them up. Oh, they
    tried. With each step, they tried to lift them up, but to no avail: they
    always dropped back to the side. This group of guys must be from the
    same family, because they all walked with their heads bobbing together
    in the same manner.

    But that wasn't the saddest part. It was the girls they were hanging out
    with that disturbed me the most. I have never in all of my life seen
    such "poor" girls. These girls had the opposite problem of the guys . .
    .. they all had to wear their little sisters' clothes. Their jeans were
    about five sizes too small. I don't know how they could even put them
    on, let alone button them up.

    Their jeans barely went over their hipbones. Most of them also had on
    their little sister's top; it hardly covered their midsection. Oh, they
    were trying to hold their heads up with pride, but it was a sad sight to
    see these almost grown women wearing children's clothes.

    However, it was their underwear that bothered me the most. They, like
    the boys, because of the improper fitting of their clothes, also had
    their underwear exposed. I have never seen anything like it. It looked
    like their underwear was only held together by a single piece of . .
    string. I know it also saddens your heart to receive this report on the
    condition of our American teenagers.

    While I go to bed every night with a closet full of clothes nearby,
    there are millions of "mall girls" who barely have enough material to
    keep it together. I think their "poorness" is why these two groups
    gather at the mall, the boys with their short daddies' ripped jeans, and
    the girls wearing their younger sisters' clothes. The mall is one place
    where they can find acceptance.

    You may wish to report these forgeries to .
    The offense is "trolling", which is defined as a post deliberately intended
    to take a newsgroup off the chartered subject.

    I'm afraid you'd have to give him copious and detailed quantities and
    he'd want to make sure others have done it with success

    Sorry, that should have been "copious and detailed instructions". (this
    should also include where he could find CTRL-F3.)
