I'm sick and tired of old ways carrying on

What is it with the world today. I wonder when we will all see each other as a human race and not different species. Racism wont stop. The fights continue on because some people cannot let go. If you talk to the younger kids that haven't been past second grade you will find that they understand humans better than the rest of us. They wouldn't understand why their parents would say they couldn't play with their best friend just because he or she looked different.

I really believe when the older generation dies off, and I say this with all respect, we will be able to move on. We cannot be a generation of racism. I'm not saying we should forget what happened in the past but we did not live through that. We are not our fathers or our fathers fathers. We live now. We can make our own world.

So this brings me to politics. We are dealing with leaders that are still half living in the past. They are setting up our future the way they want to live it when they wont even be around to experience it. Social security is a big issue. They get to collect it now but we wont in the future. They are trying to come up with ideas for us to fix this but what about our input.

I'm very inspired to vote in every election now. Who says you have to be old to be president. Why not elect a 35 year old into office. I'm really scared for what our future holds. We have no money and the world gets worse every day. What will we do? How can I make a difference?
