Here is an: Excellent post from the women at girltalk.
I know you young men might hesitate to click on a link to "Girltalk". If you're afriad, just do it when no one is looking. This is a post containing a quote from Joshua Harris to the Mahaney's teenage son Chad. It encourages him not to waste his teen years and to work hard.
It is well worth reading, not just by the guys but by girls, moms and dads as well.
By the way, all you teens might want to check out the link to The Rebulution. You can find it on the sidebar under youth.
