  • Jul 13 2013: One thing is for sure is that morality begins at a young age whether at childhood or at their formative age 12-15 years. The older generations such as the older Youth and Adults in our communities and society, have a major role in influencing, upholding and enforcing a moral code. Alot of the Music, Films and Arts in the world today are corrupted with immorality, one of the biggest influences for young people. Abdul'Baha a renouned expounder of morality and the exampler to the world says:
    "Children are even as a branch that is fresh and green; they will grow up in whatever way ye train them. Take the utmost care to give them high ideals and goals, so that once they come of age, they will cast their beams like brilliant candles on the world, and will not be defiled by lusts and passions in the way of animals, heedless and unaware, but instead will set their hearts on achieving everlasting honour and acquiring all the excellences of humankind"
    -Abdul'Baha
