i know that it is odd to have someone who is part of this group to be writing about it, but i think that really, people who are a part of the group would really have the most experiance in it, and therefore the best person to talk about it. this generation (at least in my country) seems very self absorbed. i wish that more people my age cared about what went on around them...a lot of my friends dont even bother to know whats going on in the world. i think that young people should be more aware of the world around them. and more involved. its not just global issues that young people seem too lack concern for. they seem to not care about anything...though that is a very general statement. Definitly not all young people are like that. but that is the stereotype right now. i think young people should work towards trying to change the stereotype...but thats just my personal opinion.
