I am impressed by your Instagram video where you call this generation of youth badass because you are truly right. This new generation is very strong. They accept everyone no matter their race, culture, religion or sexual orientation. One thing you said that stands out for me is: “The new generation is a badass.” I think this is thoughtful because they never give up. I think this is thoughtful because they never give up. I think you used “badass” to describe how this generation is really not scared about accepting everyone and willing to talk about the world’s problems, compared to adults. They are willing to protest for what they believe is right.
Recently I was looking at videos by young activists, and one of them is a good example of what I’m saying here. I’m especially inspired by the video by Edna Gonzalez at March for Our Lives, Washington, D.C. I live in the Bronx, and every month my community faces gun violence in schools.This one of the issues we face every day. Her brother died in gun violence and she represented all youth minorities.She wanted to honor her brother and all the people who were affected by this violence in her community. Every student should feel safe in school. This video shows how this generation is willing to show the adults what is right and make the world better. 1Basically they are badass, but in a positive way for being strong and advocating for justice.
I’ve also been learning about historical movements led by young activists. The young protesters that I find most inspiring are the ones who protested during The Vietnam War. For trying to stoped them from taking children to war and by showing them they needed instead to go to school. I think this history is a good example of something you said in your video: “The new generation care about other people” I degree with you here, because in this historical movement this youth activities care about other people too they want them to be safe and return to school. The generation before us some of them was really braved and cary.
Thanks for taking the time to read my letter. I look forward to seeing what you do or say next. Your video is very powerful we will liked to see more people like who believed in this generation and who push them to do more in the future. Having a young representant in the congress will really helped our voices heard and considered as not young immature but as a brave youth who advocated for a better future.
