Editorial Comment - Kids Today Are Better Than Before

Anyone who thinks kids today are not as responsible, hard-working  and socially-conscious as previous generations should have been in the audience when the Door County Volunteer Center recently celebrated volunteerism.

A 13-year-old eight grader from Kewaunee, Paige Kassner, wowed the audience with her story about founding “Warm Hands Warm Hearts”, a non-profit that provides cold weather gear to children in northeast Wisconsin. Her articulate presentation was a stunning example of rare maturity, confidence and poise in public. Her grandfather’s death to Lou Gehrig’s disease inspired her to form a successful non-profit and become an example to others far beyond her in years.

Southern Door High School senior and DoorCountyDailyNews.com student correspondent Matt Olson was honored as recipient of the Youth Award. Matt balances academic success and volunteerism with activities including food and blood drives, the Southern Door Auditorium and raising money to send farm animals to third world countries.

The example provided by these students should dispel any misconception that today’s youth do not share the passion and commitment of generations who have come before them. Paige Kassner and Matt Olson are inspirational volunteers, proving kids today are better than before.

Thanks to the Volunteer Center of Door County for introducing them to our community.

That’s my opinion. I’d like to hear yours.
