Do you believe in our youth?

The world can seem like a pretty crazy place sometimes, especially when dealing with all the hustle and bustle of being an adult in today's day and age. We have responsibilities, stresses and worries, relationships, and are all navigating through it in a world that is changing every single day. Sometimes, especially if we don’t have children, it can be easy to forget how the world today is affecting the children growing up in it. To have a bright future, it’s important to empower our youth with information and guidance. But, what may be unexpected sometimes is how much we can actually learn from our youth and to see how much perspective they already have on the problem in our world and what they might do differently. Were we the same way when we were kids? 

This week, I decided to do something a little different. For the first time, I brought on 13 year old Benji Gonzalez, accompanied by his father Edwin, to talk about the world from the perspective of the youth. Benji stands out as a young teen who is hopeful for the world and focuses his energy on spreading a message of love and acceptance, rather than how to be cool or to fit in. Could this be the start of a world where tolerance and love for each other is the new cool?
