The power of teenagers!
Sunday, July 23, 2006 |
“Relax! You’re still young…Enjoy your life!” This a familiar quote heard throughout the entire world. This popular misconception is discouraging our youth day by day, as a large number of adults perceive this false thought. But in reality, young adults, or teenagers as they are known, can be a major part of the force that will revolutionize the world into a better place to live.

Teenagers need to be more active, not only in the local community, but in other areas as well. They can research subjects like politics, and then find ways to transform the corrupted laws into sensible and meaningful rules. Of course, this process wouldn’t be completed in mere months, but it will take years of hard work and dedication. But it is a worthwhile cause that could change the world for everyone. And to achieve this goal, young adults need the support and encouragement of the elders.

Throughout history, youngsters have made various achievements in their great effort to better the world. One of the honoured teenagers is Toronto born, Craig Kielburger. Craig founded Free the Children, a network of children helping other less privileged children around the world, when he was only 12. His organization, Free the Children, grew to be the largest network of children helping children in the world. Free the Children built more than 350 primary schools, providing education to thousands of kids everyday. The following was taken from Free the Children’s website:
“Searching for the comics in the local paper, a front-page article caught his attention. He read about a young boy from Pakistan who was sold into bondage as a carpet weaver, escaped and was murdered for speaking out against child labor.”

There are many other examples of brave accomplishments made by youth, and there are going to be many more.

Teenagers could also make this world better by focusing on their education, and striving to get high marks and to gain the knowledge, for knowledge will benefit us in this world and the next. In addition, they should focus on creating future goals and on making a foundation for their adulthood and their following generations.

Another way to make a difference is for the youth to stay steadfast on the right path of Islam. And to remember, that if their elders discourage them from wisely trying to change the world, they shouldn’t loose their focus and to use wisdom in their thinking and actions. In this logical way, everyone can be successful in making this universe a better place to live.
