Over the past few years, I have had the pleasure and honor of lecturing to students all over The United States of America, representing multiple countries, races and cultures.

I tried to share my knowledge about mass communication and international media. I noticed the wit and passion of most of these students is wrapped around their unified hope for a better future. We all have to work harder to advocate for them, or else what are we doing here on earth?

Society appears to be squashing our youngsters by sending them to wars most do not support. We are burdening them, so we can offer tax relief to the rich. We are stealing from their future, so older people who wish to live forever can request an MRI because they feel a slight headache.

What does all of this say about the state of a global society if we collectively fund expensive procedures, but are not wiling pay teachers a fair wage? We find some stripping away a necessary focus on science, math, languages, music and art leaving our students few good options, but to spend time on their computers, or hang out at local libraries, where funding is also being cut back.

We see too many students graduating with larger amounts of debt. This is wrong and we know it!
