Face it. We now live in an age where young people are upset with the status quo, but dwell on problems without working towards solutions. Frustrations over few job openings for the unemployed, stagnate pay with little upside potential, and not being called in for interviews are just a few of the problems that plague our planets new leaders. The time has come to revive the long lost art and practice of volunteering in your community to make it a better place to live. Volunteering is not only benefitting to the people receiving assistance from the selfless volunteer, but it also bolsters the volunteers job experience and brightens their personal lives. Charity, hard work, and empathy go hand in hand in this environment, where citizens leave their homes, sometimes for weeks, in order to help eliminate the suffering of countless human beings. The current political environment has left most in America divided to a point where we will not even converse with each other on relevant issues due to the divisive nature propped up by the media, music, and entertainment industries. Standing together as human beings and lending a hand to others in a time of need, is what can without a doubt unite a community which will then advance itself in many ways just due to the open dialogue.
