Building a Proud Future

By Savanna Edwards


People plan for and think about their future every day. We hear about what others are planning to do in their lives, but have you stopped to think about yours? What is your future?


The future holds many things, but most important are the lives of the future leaders. Those of us in high school and college need to step up and teach our younger kids the importance of getting involved. As someone with younger siblings, I try to do this daily. I teach them how they can impact the world around them. It allows them to gain a sense of purpose, experience, and awareness of issues in this world. Getting involved at a young age helps develop essential skills such as leadership, teamwork, and communication. Together, we can build a society where every young person has the chance to fulfill their dreams, make a positive impact, and leave a legacy.


It is time for all of us young people to get involved because we are the future generation of workers, leaders, decision-makers, and family builders. The decisions we make now affect us for years to come. So, let’s rise together, overcome our fears, and get involved in our communities.


The time is now, and the future is ours. Let’s take the opportunity to build a future that will make us proud.
