After reading the article, “‘Slamnesty’ event amplifies voices on minority persecution,” I felt inspired to speak up on problems in our society. It’s always inspiring to see young people so passionate about the world they live in. To know that many people were involved in this event gives me hope that important issues will continue to be talked about.
I was overjoyed when I heard that thousands of students across the nation participated in the Know Tomorrow Day of Action to influence the Paris Climate Talks for the same reasons. Discussing the effects of climate change is very important in order to protect the earth we live on. A shifting climate affects everyone on this planet and even affects students here at VCU when hurricane conditions hit. The youth should continue to advocate for the betterment of our world.
