Dear future children of all ages,
The modern day era I live in, 2018, is an amazing and scary time in terms of gun rights, social media privacy, and politics.
In 2018, the same issues have been reoccurring, however, there’s has been little reform or effective actions to reduce shootings while maintaining the 2nd amendment which is the right to bear arms. The main reason behind this is there are a lot of myths and yet no one area where the actual facts and evidence can be seen to the public in a sense where it is easily to accessible to read and understand. If people can listen to the actual facts without all these myths and the influence of politics, then government and the public can address these issues with effective solutions where everyone is happy.
Another issue are the common people’s rights to privacy on social media companies such as Facebook and Instagram. There needs to be better transparent communication between the public and companies about what data can be used if any with consent of that specific individual.
The biggest issue at hand is how heavily and deeply invested are politics are in sensitive issues such as gun rights and consumer privacy. There should be clearer regulations and laws where politics can enter certain issues because that usually clouds judgement and creates bias, hence, conflict which leads to no solutions.
To the future generation of kids, speak up and protest again things that you find unfair and unjust. The next generation of kids have so many tools to voice their opinions such as social media platforms, protesting, and just know it only takes one to make a difference. Voice your opinions so we do not have to deal with the same issues in 20, 30, or 50 years.
