I am a teacher and I have noticed an ever increaseing number of people looking for instant satisfaction. If they can't get it now why bother. Sometimes it appears that parents let their chidren get raised by televeisons and vidieo games and I definetly do not want our media setting the standards for our youth. This is exactly what is happening. What do most american families do when they get home? They turn on the televison and veg out. Where will this lead our society? The loss of interest in sailing is just one of the many outcomes of this technalogical age. I am not against technology because it is a wonderful tool but like every powerful tool it can be used for the good or the bad.

I say throw away your televison and vidieo games and take your children to the wilds.
