Adults' Weakness


"Tell me if you face any unfair war," an American boy told me.
"Is there any fair war in this world?" I asked him.

Dear kid, you know, adults are very weak, even they don't really like to admit that to kids.

When they lack the ability to pursue any successful career, family, or any other life goal, they indulge in sex, drugs, or alcohol. When they are not strong enough to be kind and friendly, they fight, abuse, and lost themselves in many forms of violence. When they don't know how to save their own country, they blame or harm other countries instead; and when they couldn't work out any practical way to travel and live freely in the universe, they are trapped in this tiny planet and keep waging wars to kill each other.

Dear kid, the real strong ones live the life of love and compassion, the weak ones spread all kinds of wars and leave tons of problems for future generations after they die. How fair is that? Do you think it's fair for kids to pay for adults' weakness?

What does "fair" mean exactly?
