The youth movement has always had a voice.
In today's world a 12 year old usually is as tall as an 18 year old and has the appearance of an 18 year old too.
But, today's youth are much more tuned in to what is happening today, more than anytime before in our history.
Due to immediate news technology, today's youth can talk about many things that many adults do not even think about.
The fashions have changed too.
I see the trend towards easy to wear and care for fashions.
The usual teen in this area is layering clothes, and as the weather gets colder, the coat has become a leather jacket or hoodie.
Teens also enjoy text on the shirts and caps. They want to be heard, or , sometimes, they enjoy the shock of the viewer when wearing something that is not politically correct.
Teens do have something to say, what they say and think will be our future someday.
Let's lead them gently towards fashions that do not promote violence, and at the same time, let's be sure to listen to what teens do have to say.
Not easy, but, we can do it.
