I Am...

I am inspired, empowered, striving to be more than what has become the norm of the generation of today. I am indifferent to what is considered to be accepted by society due to what we have seen and what is seen as "admirable." I am confrontational because I will not "lie down and take it." I am motivated to see America become so much more in the future. I am pessimistic because it seems as though things will never get better for our country and society because our uprising generations are not much better than the ones raising them. I am the sore thumb sticking out, standing out for a greater future.

My community
My country
