I can see that Gabe Fontes and I share similar views on vandalism, as shown in his article “Vandalism vs. Activism.” I too witness the childish and idiotic things students do at my school that result in a big mess and give them a small sense of satisfaction.

I agree that the student's attitude of blatant disregard is “f**ked up,” as Gabe puts it. The fact that a vandal has the audacity to make such a mess, and acknowledge doing so, really demonstrates that many youth today are taking more and more for granted.

I would like to believe that I am not grouped with all those people, but I digress. My main issue is that young people need to learn the value of activities by, as Gabe suggests, joining clubs and causes that will not only better the community but possibly help better themselves.

Thank you, Gabe, for highlighting this topic and showing such insight.
