Just Some Hopes for the Future
While I am not a teenager, I'm closer to the younger side of the population (I'm 23) and I agree that certain worldviews need to change. Some beliefs of the older generation drives me crazy. I want a world where people are more accepting of each other, even if that sounds cliche and unattainable. I want people to love each other regardless of sex, gender, race, sexuality, ethnicity, age, ability, religion, etc. I want the world to be more open minded in regards to things like sex and alcohol. I want men and women to be ablw to be friends without people assuming sexual overtones. I want a more economically secure world for everyone--meaning everyone has access to food, shelter, and healthcare--even if that raises taxes, even if that means I'm a socialist. I want women to have freedom. I want immigrants to have freedom. I want mental illness to be taken seriously. I want art to be appreciated. I want violence to decrease, even if that means weapon control. I want the environment, and especially cute animals (they all are cute), to be treasured. I want people to know how to read an article--the date, the publisher, the journal, the author--so they know they are getting the best information and not sharing something that causes widespread fear and falsity.
All of my points stems from a place of acceptance, empathy, and open-mindedness. When we can momentarily put our biases aside to listen to the other, I think we can truly understand each other and enact legislations that are best for everyone.
But who knows what will happen, right?
Hello, I'm sorry I'm not a teen, I am younger than a teen but I think we should have a say in voting because we need a good prime minister when we get older, we need to fell like we are counted in, we can't be left out in everything. Can we? I don't want to be left out with everything and I guess you don't either.
