Young People, Take A Stand and Protest!

Protesting Is Uncomfortable. Should It Be Easier?

Thought I would share this article above from NPR that I came across.

I am sure that a lot of us have come across this dilemma in regards to protesting. Protesting (or any acts of standing up for or against something) is definitely meant to be uncomfortable and difficult to do. We can see in history what people were met with who protested against injustices. They were met with violence, arrest, and even death. I especially think about this now because a couple days ago we honored the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who faced violence, arrest, and was assassinated for standing up against injustices. Even though, we still face the scares today, they are not even close to what those in the past in this country have faced and those in less democratic countries face.

I think it is great that there are teens and young adults (I guess I can still claim to be a young adult myself) who are politically conscious and aware of the social injustices that this country faces. We need more Millennials and Gen Z individuals who want to stand up against injustices. I understand the worry of what others think, but that is the whole point in protesting and standing up. It is to challenge the issues in this country that are destructive to democracy and human rights.

Stand tall. We have the right to freedom of speech, and it should not matter where we express those rights. We need to make that clear to all the young ones who want to take a stance.

Rebel Out.

Millennials, Where Are We At?

Millennials, where are we at? As a millennial myself, I pay attention to the news and I read articles on all kinds of topics involving national and international affairs. However, why do I feel disconnected when these conversations about pressing issues are taking place. As we are into the presidential season, for example, obviously there are candidates vying for the support of every single citizen in this country, but why as a millennial do I feel there is nobody speaking for us or with us? Why are domestic issues serious to millennials not being discussed heavily? Why do we rarely hear anyone speak about solving “insert issue” that is hurting millennials? Where are we?

I am obviously not the most knowledgeable individual on everything that is everything, but I know that we are not involved much. We do not see millennials (or representatives) on the major outlets discussing pressing issues. Honestly, that is quite inexcusable to me. They need to let us more into the conversations. Granted, we ourselves need to take the initiative to be involved; even if that means coming in uninvited. I am all in for us millennials flooding all corners of the internet and our communities to make our voices heard on the issues.

Our generation for the most part has entered into adulthood. We are older and wiser than we were before (obviously since that comes with age). That being said, we have to contribute to the discussions on how we can make this country and our world better for future generations. I do not know about you, but I do not want my children and grandchildren (if I am blessed to have any) and other future children grow up in a time like the one we did. Yeah, our time has been better than our parents’ and grandparents’ but we still have a long ways to go until we are in a truly equal, safe, and open-minded world. Let’s work at this and not let our voices be censored or ignored. Write your blogs and articles. Write your books. Make your videos. Have your protests. Have your meetings. Be heard. Do not hold back. Do not let anybody stop you.

So my fellow millennials, I ask this again………Where are we at?
