Our generation has reached a crossroads. Where we can either choose to build our nation together as one, or allow old divisions of the past to dictate what our future will look like. From one generation to the next, it has always been our responsibility to consistently mold and change ourselves into a more perfect union: socially, technologically, and economically- so today should be no different. Our country's great potential is now going to be left up to our generation. Putting aside partisan arguments, we are all looking for the same ends: a safe place to live, great educational and economic opportunities regardless of the neighborhood you’re from. A government that handles the people’s business, protecting our rights and freedoms regardless of how we look like, not a government that handles its own business, while telling us how to live our own personal lives.
