What we see is a generation with a great concern for others until the opinions of others are different than theirs. We see a bunch of kids that are self-righteous in their beliefs, intolerant of others, and demanding of getting their way.
They are taught to scream and hold their breath until the whole world bows to their demands and whims. Which is scary. They are sort of in lockstep about who’s right and who’s wrong in the world. That’s scary when there is no room for compromise and discussion. Bad things can happen.
Kids these days… what they’re doing, right and wrong.
I think young adults today are trying hard to be successful, caring people who have a concern for the rights of all people and animals. I think they are at times pushing too hard.
In the history of the world, change often starts with the young. Young people looked at the world with fresh eyes. They see the world as it is and ask “why?” and imagine a different world and ask “why not?” George Bernard Shaw and Robert Kennedy asked these questions long ago, but young people today are asking them again which merely tells us that the world’s gonna change and in what manner, we all have to wait and leave it to the youth which is moulding it for us.
“We all are equally wise and equally foolish”
Kids these days are tolerant and accepting. They embrace differences. They know that gender doesn’t mean they can or can’t do something. Boys can wear tutus, and girls can be president. They know that families come in all shapes and sizes.
Kids these days are saving the world. They are fighting for the planet and for everyone living on it. While most adults remain inactive or in denial when it comes to climate change. These kids are stepping up to the plate for all of us and being the change they want to see in the world.
Kids these days are activists. They use school assignments to educate others about marginalized groups and social justice causes. Kids these days are using technology to expand their worlds and connect with others. They are coming up with new ways to solve problems and looking at the world with fresh eyes.
“They ask what, how and why while, we adults, bury all these queries deep inside us carrying the stigma with us.”
Kids these days are big-hearted, kind, and generous. They grow their hair and donate it to kids with cancer. They ask for donations to others on their birthday and holiday wish lists. They befriend people who are older or younger or different than them because they know that what really matters in friendship is a person’s heart.
Kids these days are sensitive and caring, hard-working and resilient. They’re kids, and we’re only human, after all. No one’s perfect, no matter how much you think things were so much better “when you were a kid.”
