Our voice

All teenagers want to express their own opinion, and I am no different. We all want to be heard about our own ideas, we want to speak our thoughts. But most importantly, we want people to listen. We don't want someone to just stand there and just nod their head and say, "No, really?", "Awesome, I don't believe it!". When you do that it makes us want to give up. And just so all of you people who pretend to listen, think of how bad it would feel if you were expressing yourself about something you really cared about and the people you were expressing yourself to were standing there being jerks. When you do that it makes people think that you're someone who does not care about what others think and you are to full of yourself to even care what others think.

It's a tough row to hoe sometimes to get people to listen to what you have to say. So be sure to measure your words and make sure that you devote yourself to saying the Right things in the Right way.
If what you say is Right, then people will listen. They'll have no choice. And, even if you think they're not listening, if you touch the right nerve, they'll listen more than you realize.
