I’m sorry to say that our generation, the millennials, are really lazy people for the most part. Now, I know that there are teenagers out there that actually try to do something with their lives or else I wouldn’t be going against my own generation. Most people, mainly adults, think that we are all bad. Really, there are people out there my age and even younger than me that are thinking the same way I do, even if you don’t think so. Most of us, teens, are always thinking about “me, me, me It’s all about me.” When really we need to wake up to what’s around us.

I would say that I have never been that way, but unfortunately I once thought that way. I still do at times, and I am trying to work on that. I never thought that my life would get any better and therefore thought that I would be stuck in this world of selfishness and uncaring people. I want to be with the people in this world who believe the same things I do. We need to help others realize that we have limited time to help the world change, so making a change everyday even the slightest change in someone’s heart can change the whole world in time.

People need to wake up to the sanity left in the world. I really do wish we could go back in time. To a time where people didn’t know what technology was yet. Another choice could be to, like one of my current teachers: Mrs. Covey said before, send us to ranch for a field trip without technology of any kind and see how we do. I think that most of us would not last a week in that situation, but it would be well worth it, in my opinion.

I don’t care what people say about me. I don’t care if people say I’m crazy or insane, because I know I am in so many ways, and trust me that is exactly why I think the way I do. Maybe I should’ve been born in another time or something, but I am here, in this time period for a reason, and that is to help this world from going into the state of mind where they can’t be without technology.
