It is said that after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Winston Churchill popped the top on a bottle of champagne. He seemed convinced that this event cemented an eventual victory over their enemies. He referred to America as a boiler, ready to explode if given reason.
But when you think about it, that is not an exclusive American quality.
It is a human one.
This quality is most evident in the young people of every generation.
The young people of this world constantly question the status quo, and, if provoked, begin moving with a momentum that has historically proven to be hard to stop.
The young people of my generation, commonly referred to as “millenials”, do not seem to know exactly what we want. We seem to be rebels without a cause, willing to jump on any bandwagon that appears before us.
If one were to give us a cause that was unanimously considered honorable, everyone else would be wise to step out of the way and let it snowball.
No one would go unchanged.
Yet this generation is not statistically likely to believe the message we have to give them.
It could be a number of reasons.
What motivates us?
It is a question that may seem easy on the surface, but when you begin to really consider it the answer is elusive.
This is what goes through my mind almost constantly.
How do I spread the Word to my generation, when they think of God as little more than a fairy tale?
It is something that has to be considered.
Because this generation is crying out for a cause.
And I’ll prove it to you.
Go to a place where large groups of us are gathered. You can feel the tension. The power. It almost seems that we are a powder keg, waiting for a spark.
We have that spark.
We must now find the way to administer it.
When that happens, there will be very little to do but wait for the inevitable explosion.
