Naperville and other places of privilege can be so disappointing and embarrassing. A friendly reminder that our snobbishness runs far deeper than the criterias of wealth we passed in a magazine's ranking last month. This topic in itself is well deserving of its own post but the quote and my friend's concluding sentence below sum up this occurrence quite simply. (Click on her name to go to her post she wrote because I think she did a good job of writing a reprimand that all spoiled, suburban kids should take note of.)

Teach the ignorant as much as you can; society is culpable in not providing a free education for all and it must answer for the night which it produces. If the soul is left in darkness sins will be committed. The guilty one is not he who commits the sin, but he who causes the darkness.
Les Misérables - Victor Hugo 

You'd think that with more education, more opportunity and more money, you'd learn to have a bit more compassion.

^^^It's really as simple as that.
