Interesting article, thanks for sharing.

While many of his points are very true (especially about how someone needs to find a personal desire to go and serve), what he doesn't seem to acknowledge much (until some at the very end) is that many of his points can and should be handled by helping our youth mature at an earlier age. Luckily, that's just what good parenting - and a strong scouting program - are built to do! Earning money, learning responsibility and hard lessons are all things that should be done before someone turns 18.
