Youth People

Tags:

I am a youth with dreams about my comunity, my city, my country... about the world, and sometimes I thing that I don´t have chances to do my dream real, thats for a lot of factors but the most important is the stigma.
I bealive that this stigma is in everywhere but I can only speak for my experience:

For the education sistem, we are students
For the health sistem, we are pacients
For the police, we are infractors
For the fathers, we are incomplete persons
For the authorities, we not exist

But nobody really believes that we are people we bring to society, with our work, our ideas, our projects, our dreams...even, in many cases we have believed those ideas.

Despite that, there are youths wanting to act, not just young people who know the problems of the communities also proposing solutions and in many cases doing these solutions happen, without recognition from anyone, compared to a society that looks only to blame social ills such as unable to "do something productive"

I firmly believe that this can be changed with the support of those actors anonymous rule change that tomorrow the world ...

I think that most neck that "unity is strength" and that should prevail in all sectors historically excluded women, homosexuals, young people, so all ...

You think so?

Poverty is man-made that we can undo.

My daughters love seeing other young woman involved on here and taking an active part in changing the world for the better. It is important that the young ones know they can reach their dreams and to dare to dream even in some cases.
