“Anonymous extraordinaries”: Fighting for their dreams, with hearts singing

Why make the case for optimism, you ask? After listening to young people like Natalie Warne, and Courtney Martin, and Sarah Kay, and Adora Svitak (especially Adora Svitak), not to mention witnessing the courage and conviction of the UC Davis students and of young protesters everywhere, how can I not be optimistic? We’ve left the world a mess, but a new generation is taking the reins, with hope and determination and irrepressible creativity and a passion for justice and fairness. They’ll find it rough going — the status quo never changes easily or willingly — and we all owe it to them to make space for their dreams and talents; but I’m absolutely confident they’re equal to the challenges ahead. May they make the world a better place.

“In order to make anything a reality, you have to dream about it first.” — Adora Svitak
