Thought of the Week - Our Future

Theme: Our Future

Quote:

“Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”

  • John F. Kennedy

 Explanation/Challenge/Question:

There have been a lot of decisions made over the past few years through votes and changes in policy.  These are going to be changes that affect us.  There may be worries about what the future may hold as the media often give a dire view of the state of the world for those under 25. However, there is always a chance to get involved, take hold of what we have and make a difference for the future we want.

  • Where do you see yourself at 25? What will be the difference between what you have and what your parents had?
  • Do you see yourself having one long career or lots of different jobs? What do you see yourself doing/training to do?

In groups think about 3 or more things you would share with the older generation to help them understand the differences in your worlds. How would you work together to make a positive difference for your future.
