Dear Next Generations,

It’s widely said, ever since my parents and grandparents’ time, that children are the future.

You may be angry at us. For good reasons or not.

Listen, youth probably did not solve your problems. It never in history had, in fact.

It doesn’t matter if you have the eagerness to change. Even if you’re mature to deal with power, human nature turns out to be an issue itself.

No human alone can solve the world’s problems. There’s no guarantee, even, that we united may.

I have lived for 21 years and, though it’s yet few, I learned a thing or two about life.

Though egotism is bad, if goodwill was enough to improve the world, we would face no problems that we do now.

Are the generations being corrupted? Is that why the young of yesterday became the big bad guys that run governments and companies? I disagree.

Don’t criticize your elders for the problems of your day. The world is far from simple. Humans are limited and weak. Be them your leaders or the poor.

However flawed they are, most politicians and CEOs try to do their best, even though the media disagrees.

Follow good human being examples. Why admire a celebrity who has talent but lacks the virtues of heart?
