I don't share young Kris Klotz's religiously-based sense of civic duty as expressed in his column of Sunday the 16th ("The struggle to reconcile idealism"), but it deserves praise most obviously on this basis:
It served as a refreshing contrast to the Far Right fare of those syndicated pundits whose ideological rants often agenda-driven, often vicious, often haughty predominate: Michelle Malkin, Mona Sharen, Cal Thomas, George Will, Thomas Sowell, L. Brent Bozell, and Bill O'Reilly.
Kris Klotz's environmental vision is sufficiently wise to look "beyond the expansion of non-renewable resources."
"According to this (religious) duty," Kris writes, "our goal must be to ensure the best possible future for our neighbors and future generations."
One hopes that Kris Klotz, and other young Americans equally committed, will someday apply his sense of civic duty to the even more daunting issues of social justice "for our neighbors and future generations."
