Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Well, for the past week, I have been in a program called CYNERGY. Well, it's a pretty neat program where the program dedicates its time to helping youths change the world.Well, throughout the week, I have been thinking that they were pretty smart.
Who has more energy? Who has more inspiration? Who has more will? Who has more innocence? Why, the kids do! Children are all smart, and they have a sort of light that stimulates happiness and hopefulness. We, the children, are the hope for the future, and we don't have to wait until we get all grown up. We can do it now, while we're still young and we have the motivation to do it.
In this fellowship, we took some children who were victims of domestic violence to the zoo and tried to show them what it was like to have someone to be there for them. At first, some of us were like "Oh, how cool! We get to go play with little kids" and stuff like that, but later on, we realized that there was so much more to these kids. They have been through so much, yet most of them were laughing and playing around, still intact and peaceful, while most adults would have probably be much less trustful and broken. There was one child who wanted to be a policeman, so that he could "get all the bad guys." These children still had hope, and they seriously wanted to change the world, or at least try to make sure that no one else had to go through what they had to go through.
Children are so energetic and capable of doing so much. We don't have to let all the adults solve all the problems. We should try to do it ourselves, because the adults are going to be the ones to suffer if the world becomes hectic and chaotic, the kids are. We are the ones that are going to suffer, and I don't know about you guys, but I don't think that that's right. So, kids all over the world, it doesn't matter if you are big or small, little or bigger, fat or skinny, athletic or nerdy, drama queen or loner, middle school student or high school student, try to do something great! You don't have to change the whole world; you'll be surprised how much a little change can lead unto a gigantic change.

Oh and here's a tip: A little bit of kindness goes a very long way!
