Questions from our youth?

Not everyone who is young asks questions about why the world is as it is. Not every young person looks around themselves and wonders why the world is so blatantly unfair. Not every youth ponders whether there might be a better way of doing things, of sharing out the global pie, of ensuring that children don't die simply because they have no access to clean water, of making the planet a place that cares. Not every young person does that. I did. I asked the questions. Now I have the answer.

Life is shit.

Have been suffering today from many barbed comments about the growing length of my hair. The problem is that longer hair is perfect in colder weather. I feel I shall ignore the unremitting hairism of others and allow my follicles to continue to express themselves!
