Wide Eyed Wonder from Teenage Boy

In Family Life, In the News on February 11, 2011 at 11:59 pm

A teenage son and his mom sat glued to NPR and then later CNN on TV.  He was home sick but well enough to understand the importance of the revolution in Egypt today.  At one point he asked me, “Will this be in our history books?”  Apparently his history book stops at the moon landing or something.  Now he is aware that history is unfolding before his eyes and that not everything is in that history book of his.

The world just opened up to him (even beyond YouTube).  Cool to watch this particular teenager on this particular day.

Are teenagers today interested in current events and history?
