    What will it take to get a Gasp?

    You know, in 90% of the cases, it's us... the adult generation that is responsible. Kids are kids because they're willfully ignorant and immature. It's us.

    Now what can we possibly do about it except teach Virtue. Not values.. Virtue. Do we know how to do that anymore? God, I hope so.


    At least one in four teenage girls nationwide has a sexually transmitted disease, or more than 3 million teens, according to the first study of its kind in this age group.

    About half of the girls acknowledged having sex; among them, the rate was 40 percent. While some teens define sex as only intercourse, other types of intimate behavior including oral sex can spread some infections.

    For many, the numbers most likely seem "overwhelming because you're talking about nearly half of the sexually experienced teens at any one time having evidence of an STD," said Dr. Margaret Blythe, an adolescent medicine specialist at Indiana University School of Medicine and head of the American Academy of Pediatrics' committee on adolescence.

    Half of the teens playing barn animals are sick. There are all kind of medicines that may help them. There is only one remedy that absolutely will help them. Virtue... passed from the Church to the adults, and from the adults to the kids. That's how it works.
