A Quote by Peggy Noonan on children, death, education, giving, love, parenthood, pollution, schools, sons, vengeance, vision, and world

We adults forget what we do to children's imaginations when we go through one of our national seizures on an issue. A dozen years ago, Hollywood fell in love with the environmental issue and put enviro messages in all their shows. The messages made their way into the funnies and magazines, and parents went to school officials and said, "We'd like our children to be better educated on environmental concerns." The schools came through with a vengeance. Now I have a little son who thinks he's going to die from pollution. We do not educate our children; we traumatize them. We are not giving them a vision of a better world; we are giving them nightmares.

My generation, faced as it grew with a choice between religious belief and existential despair, chose marijuana. Now we are in our Cabernet stage.
