Behind all of the noise of the world and the pressure to just let things go and be ‘normal’ there are people who want to speak out and be heard. They want to scream from the top of the rooftops that they are trying to change the world and won’t everyone join them?
I’ve been told that one person can’t change the world. That nothing I do as an individual will have any effect on the way the world works. Maybe it won’t. But when I make a stand and do what I believe is right my own world changes. The world of the people around me change. Perhaps they will in turn change. And then their family and friends will hear about the changes.
A revolution doesn’t have to start with a bang or a shot heard around the world. It can begin with a simple thought or a simple word. ‘No’ and ‘yes’ are the most powerful words in the English language. You are given the power to make your own decisions and your decisions are important. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Young people try to changet the world and recieve ridicule from both peers and authority figures. You’re too young. No one will listen. The world is the way it is and there’s nothing you can do to change that. No one cares.
Were you too young? Did no one listen to you? Is the world the same way it was when you were my age? Did no one care then?
The world changes because people speak out. We are all screaming on the inside, begging for the world to listen to us. Begging for change. We finally realize that the worlds problems have been settled upon our young shoulders and you discourage us every step of the way. How can we change the world when everyone is against us?
There are thousands of opportunities everyday to stand up and speak your mind. What stops us is that we are afraid. We’re afraid that no one cares. That no one out there will want to hear what we have to say or worse, they’ll ridicule our ideas.
It’s time to stop being afraid of ridicule. In order to change the world we must be bold even when our knees are knocking, our hands are shaking and everyone in the world seems to be against us. Always remember that you are not alone and there are others like you who crave a voice. Raise your voices together and no one will be able to ignore you again.
