How can we – forever neglected youths who are surrounded by an ever-increasing crescendo of injustice, destruction, distraction, futility and archaic practises – ever hope of bringing about a change in our beloved country?
Blending the elders and the youth together is like mixing water and cement, it takes time and effort but the end result can be a strong, enduring product. One must note that blending with another generation does not mean dissolving in it like sugar in water but should be like a dilutable flavoured drink and water.
When you conform to others’ standards just to fit in, you are like a pawn on a chessboard at their whim. Youths are not instruments for violence but are the current runner who has just received the button stick, carrying it to an unknown tomorrow where another runner is waiting for the same button stick.
Fellow youth, never allow yourself to become one of those people who, when they are old, speak of how they missed chance after chance to get things right around them.
If you wait, all that happens is that you get older! In the middle of today, we are already in tomorrow. Where you will sit when you are old will show where you stood in your youth.
All around the World, nations are entrusting youths to carry their country’s torch to the glory we seek as a people. We have countries that are in the light of the world’s balance of power, countries such as Austria and France, led by youths.
Why not us?
At least why not just allow youths to be on the high round table of decision making debates, processes and solutions.
Side-lining youths in the affairs of a country is like taking a beautiful painting and using it as a doormat!

Leave no youth behind!
