Wonderful. I have great hope with the up and coming young people, those 12 years and into their mid twenties. I have been reading a lot of stories on their courage, their ability to speak truth to power, their conception of how things are all out of whack.

My good thoughts are with them, they will need to do better than the generations ahead of them did. I'm afraid too many feel asleep at the switch and allowed much sadness to enter the lives of too many everywhere. It is with great hope that these young people will change the Vision of their futures.

Thanks so much for flagging this, Jess!
So important to share how these kids are dealing with injuries and turning things round to make good come from what they have suffered. What happens to those who are injured is something that seldom reaches the public eye.
The PCRF video (embedded in the article) also gives food for thought ..
