Upcoming Disaster

I see young adults making the same mistakes I made in my youth.  I attempt to offer advice whenever it is appropriate.  I hope they will learn from my example and save themselves some unnecessary grief.

However, they ignore my words.  They believe they are just as knowledgeable as I am (if not more so) and that nothing bad will ever happen to them.

I see the upcoming disaster, but I am powerless to stop it.  They must learn their lessons the hard way.

It seems to be a common trait among humans.  I often ignored the older generation in my youth and at times I suffered as a result.  Now the younger generation ignores me and they will experience the same painful consequences.
