STORY: Learning To Fall by Rev Wm Phifer

Story title: Learning To Fall
by : Rev Wm Phifer

     What we today call the youth culture is really not new. Through the ages, young people have made significant contributions. Consider the accomplishments of these"kids":
    Alfred Tennyson wrote his first classic at 18.
    Napoleon had conquered Italy when he was 25.

Writes Byron and Raphael both died at 37.
    Poe had done all his writing by 39.
    Scientist Newton made his greatest discoveries before he was 25.
    Mozart wrote operas before he was 15.
    Jesus reshaped the world at 30.
    Many of the world's geniuses never saw 40.
    As 1 Timothy 4:12 puts it: "Let no one despise you because of your youth."
