We are the future.

Zara Khan, North Editor-in-Chief

Maybe in 2020 we can elect someone who will spend their time making bridges rather than building walls. Over the past year, Americans have witnessed fake news, rising tensions and nuclear threats. What does this mean for future generations?

Future voters, in times of such political acceleration need to be aware of what is happening around them politically, socially and economically. This is so we are more capable of making the right decisions. We need to see things for what they are and not what was indoctrinated  to us at a young age.

It is important to vote. It is important to stand up for your beliefs as long as those beliefs do not harm others, whether it is in the form of a protest, signing a petition, or as simple as emailing political leaders. Doing these things  hold political leaders accountable and helps people get educated in the process.

For minorities living under Trump’s America, the future is uncertain and it is scary.

It is 2017. We are still fighting for women’s rights, LGBTQ+ rights and basic human rights. With the nation divided more than ever, our generation needs to be politically aware and active. We need to walk into that polling station with confidence and knowledge not uncertainty and indecisiveness. The goal is to move forward not backward.
