A solution doesn’t lead to a us/them mindset: a solution results in “There were once groups fighting here? How strange…”

I just had a birthday yesterday. 44 years. Been here 44 years so far. I’ve been bringing attention to rights of kids/teens since I was 14 years old. Went all-in at 18-25 on the early Internet. Through the years, I supported the causes within youth rights that matter to me; a sense of personal empowerment, coping skills, making the most of what you can with the limited resources available to you and most importantly, attempting to convey a sense that not only should you not be discriminated against because you’re young but that, should you make it to ages no longer considered young, but middle or old, you should not participate in that discrimination yourself.

I never stopped.

The abuses of power of bigs to smalls never stopped being important and I do what I can. I’ve had to accept a lot of things in the process that I couldn’t successfully fight.

Parenting style, the education system – some things are immensely huge yet changes can be made by eroding the issues from within so that they eventually cease to exist. A solution doesn’t lead to a us/them mindset: a solution results in “There were once groups fighting here? How strange…”
