Oh, what a night.

Sometimes I wonder if it's really all worth it, all the effort that I put into this mission... all the faith I put into the youth of the Marianas. I honestly feel miserable right now. It's as if all my dreams have been crushed.

On the Facebook group "You Know You're From Saipan ... ," two people who go by the names of "Fernando Falig" and "TonSex Demapan" have caused me to lose hope in this current generation of youth. Yeah, you can say that "they're just kids...give them time to grow..." blah blah blah all that stuff.... but you know what? "They're just kids" is NOT an excuse for someone to laugh about bullying causing a kid to commit suicide. Are our kids today REALLY this heartless and ignorant? I mean, REALLY? Have I been so blinded by my hopes for the future of the CNMI that I failed to see just how bad the youth of today is? I just.... I honestly don't know what to say. I mean, WOW. As if laughing about an 11-year old girl killing herself wasn't bad enough, they proceeded to DEFEND their actions when I confronted them about it... just...WOW. I honestly don't know what else to say, but WOW.

I just don't know anymore. I just don't know. I'm losing hope fast, folks. Help. Please. Before I lose all hope for our youth. Someone, please help.
