While addressing Ghana’s parliament last year, President Obama took a moment to say something to young people, telling them that the future of their nations lie in their hands:
“You have the power to hold your leaders accountable, and to build institutions that serve the people. You can serve in your communities, and harness your energy and education to create new wealth and build new connections to the world. You can conquer disease, and end conflicts, and make change from the bottom up. You can do that.”
“But these things can only be done if all of you take responsibility for your future.”
For the young people who read this blog, I want to know, do you think your generation can do all of these things?
