Understanding the future

It’s 2018 and we have technology to launch cars into space, find long-lost relatives with a small tube of spit, and take HIV out of a patient, but for some reason our social problems are getting worse.

We peaked in 2015 for peace, love and kindness. Now, in 2018, our love seems to be spread out by political priorities. Too many people are arguing about pro life and pro choice instead of just educating their children about safe sex. Too many people seem to care about gun control to care about the mental health of the new generation. If a child is showing signs of aggression or hatred toward their life they should be able to feel open and accepted, not ignored.

Just because my classmates and I are called the iGeneration doesn’t mean we don’t live in the same world that you do. The only difference is that we aren’t getting the support we need to get through it.
