I don't envy these kids. The arc of adolescence continues to grow longer and longer. My father's adolescence was shorter than mine, and my grandfather's was shorter than his.

Eventually, food insecurity, war, and disease will revisit, and adolescence will be a luxury again.

Their pain and fear is real, but their circumstance is historically rare.
