The Responsibility of Youth

John Waters once said that "the responsibility of youth is to challenge the generation that has come before.”

To question the discrepancy between words and actions. To challenge the inequalities of class, race and gender. To shake up the status quo and test the waters.

To speak for those who cannot. To protect the weak ones who have no armor of their own. To remind us that difference is beautiful and ordinary does not exist.

To lift up the depressed and correct the arrogant. To respect the aged ones and protect the creativity of the young. To use their freedoms with gratitude and honor those who created these opportunities for them.
