Despite all the changes, all of the technologies, all the activities and all the news of the world, youth go on. Everything that I’ve read has shown me that young people have existed for all of time, whether recognized for their unique status in society or for their integral contributions to the good of the whole, youth have always been there.

I go on as well. Starting today I am rededicating this blog: Here I will continue to share, examine, critique and explore young people in the world today. Expect more of the same commentary, as well as news, links and other information about young people, youth activism, social change, student engagement and youth empowerment. If you think this has been whiley or critical in the past, you haven’t seen anything yet.

Look for more from here on out – and send me more, too. I’m willing to stand out if you’re reading. Thanks for that support.
