    I'm that womans age and it is hard for me to think of a son doing this. I have a son and he is very repectful of me. He would never do this. This young man must be on drugs. Our young men and women are on the decline and they have No yearning to look forward to careers are of anything.When I was younger we dreamed of meeting Mr. Right and of getting married.As soon as young girls are teenagers they've already had sex and some already had children. They don't wait for Mr. Right and get married. Whats this world coming to ?
