As Nights follows the Day, the natural order the universe dictates the Young will inherit the Earth from the Old. The question therefore is not if the Youth will assume the leadership from the Old Guard, but once having assumed the leadership role, how well will the youth performance in the leadership role – Will it maintain the High Standard of Stewardship after the baton changes or will it be a disappointing new order of things?This is true in all human affairs and there is a huge responsibility caste on the current leadership in any organization/community to ensure the new generation is ready and willing to take this responsibility.
