Coming of Age in the Aughts

I really enjoyed this essay from Courtney Martin. I'm not a Christian anymore, and there was much in my church upbringing that I was glad to jettison, but there was a consistent thread that the world does not love those who do good, and that to continue to do good in spite of the world requires strength of character, will, and resolve. I'm an obstinate little bugger, so that message always resonated with me.

Of course, that's a common thread in pop culture as well, so maybe I just got it from X-men comics.
