Dear Adults

PRESENTED ON OCT 21, 2017
IN EL PASO @ VOL 17

Melody Gomez works with Square Peg Youth Empowerment. Melody asks how often do we consider that we are projecting expectations on our youth, and are asking them for blind compliance with explicit interference. Are we asking of our youth what we wouldn’t want for ourselves? Maybe the Panacea to global ills is as simple as recognizing that our youth are rookie global citizens, and we should ask them take a bigger role in their world. Melody asks are we the role models with whom our youth want to participate?
