Arrogant Young Kids

I saw a photo the other day of four or five young boys from rich families standing, in suits and ties, at their schools. Maybe it was a graduation or a prom or something.

These kids could not have been more than 15 or 16 years old.

But the facial expressions of relaxed, self-satisfied arrogance and condescension were overwhelming.

Their parents were well-educated, financially successful people.

But at fifteen years old, what authority and status and societal position had they themselves attained? Near zero.

Yet, their entire souls screamed of their age, their accomplishment and their social status.
