    I am at a loss as to a solution to the problem expressed in this article. Having taught teens for over 35 years, I don’t think of them as predators. However, I am not quite sure what some teens today are thinking. Via contributions of friends and family and the huge assistance of our municipality, we built a dog park in memory of our son who was killed while serving as a Golani sniper. The park is in constant use by the neighbors- adults, teens, and younger kids- who bring their dogs to run freely in the park. Unfortunately, it is also used by teens who sit in it, drinking, smoking, throwing their bottles against the statue and signs made in memory of my son. There is graffiti on the back of the statues and on the sign, the two dogs (statues) have had beer bottles broken over them and left on the dirt, the statues have been mutilated, pulled over, tails ripped off the dogs,etc. So, while I don’t consider teens in general in a negative light, what would you have me think of those teens sitting in the park who care so little for their environment or the sacrifice of others that they find it entertaining to destroy something built out of sorrow for the good of the neighborhood?

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
