Despite the common belief that your voice is underestimated just because you’re a teenager, it is important to know that your voice does matter; you just have to be willing to let it be heard.
Recently I was pushed into a corner in which I had to contact the district head of food and nutrition; I believed I was going to get pushed into the “unimportant” folder in her computer. However, that wasn’t the case, I was treated as an adult and thing are now getting done.
As a student, you should never underestimate your voice. It is hard to believe, but our voice is the one that matters most in this era. We are often blown off because “we’re too young” or “we wouldn’t understand,” but in 15 or 20 years, it’ll be us getting things done.
There is a reason that President Obama is going out of his way to reach out to the youth and there is a reason why governors and politicians are going out of their way to make US happy! Its because in just a few its going to be US filling out presidential ballots and looking at who has been interested in US.
Take a stance and Make Your Voice Be Heard.
This past week has taken quite a toll on my family. Last Tuesday, Pooh bear, passed away due to a pre existing heart condition. For me, personally, this part week has been full of tears, depression, regrets and reminiscing. Losing a loved one is always difficult, but I think that when you lose a pet, its like losing a child.
Pooh Bear was four years old when he died last Tuesday. I think the hardest part about this has been the fact that he passed away 16 years too soon. I mean, cats usually live 16 to 20 years, and for him to have only lived four years was unfair. There is obviously a lot I can say about him; I can express my love and gratitude for having in my life at all. However, as a write this I get teary eyes and my heart drops to my stomach and I get a lump in my throat. So the only thing I can say now is that I am thankful for all the years I was able to spend with him and all the love that we gave each other.
I love you, my little baby. You will remain in all our thoughts and hearts forever.
