There used to be one. It was called the Discovery Center for Teens. I used to hang out there with friends. Counselors were on hand while we played pool. It was behind the Foster Freeze. Unfortunately it grew and became profit oriented. No longer accessible unless through a formal network.... :(

Well said. It seems it is this need to point the finger at someone, anyone that is creating a culture which tolerates only one choice out of two --good or bad. How difficult it must be for youth to mature in an environment that has such limited options. Many factors contribute to how we cope with life's stressors. Temperament which is genetically determined or where we are along a vast age continuum when we deal with certain experiences or trauma (not necessarily the overly simplified ABC Sunday night at the movies kind). We should all love humanity and we should all be weeping for one of lost little ones.
