Mayor Michael Nutter shared some of his thoughts as he thought about the violence that erupted in his city. It was a candid, measured address about what is causing some of the discord within and among the younger generation, those under 25 years of age.
What I appreciated the most about the mayor’s comments is that he said what many have thought. While it is a generalization of current trends in youth culture, there is an honesty to his words that resonates with what many may be thinking. Mayor Nutter said that “sense and non-sense can exist at the same time.”
While I don’t agree with everything he said, I appreciate his desire to address these issues in a straight forward way.
