"There is very little in the popular culture of teens and tweens that is gentle and slow, gracious and warm."

From Peggy Noonan:

Here is my concern. There are not fewer children living stressed, chaotic lives in America now, there are more. There will be more still, because among the things America no longer manufactures is stability. And the culture around them will not protect them, as the culture protected me. The culture around them will make their lives harder, more frightening, more dangerous. They are going to come up with nothing to believe in, their nerves are essentially shot. And they’re going to be—they are already—very angry.

The above is from  her new book.  But I found it here.
