|The Graduate by Norman Rockwell|
It’s nerve-wracking to watch a son reach adulthood these days. (The same is true for girls, but I'll save that for a later post.) The Associated Press recently reported that 53 percent of America’s recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed. Many of these young people carry huge debts, too. This is a tragic way to begin life! We want so much more for our sons, but the world is broken. Our sons may be broken, too. (Did you ever meet an adult with no issues at all?!) A million problems can potentially thwart their success and fulfillment.
