Dear Representative Ocasio-Cortez,

Paragraph 2 changes
I am passionate about your Instagram video where you call the current generation badass because it helps me to understand that this generation is really powerful and they are making changes.

Paragraph 3 changes
One thing you said that stands out for me is: “I think that they are more sensitive, in a positive way, in that they actually care about other peoples' experiences and lives. I think this is This touched me because it is true that the young people, this generation cares about others, cares about everybody. The youngest are more sensitive because they feel empathy for others. This generation put themselves in someone else's shoes, they think about others and take action for those that have not that have not had a voice.

The youngest are more sensitive because they feel empathy for others. This generation put themselves in someone else's shoes, they think about others and take action for those that have not had a voice.

I do entirely agree with you that the generations are not afraid to talk about issues and topics. They do research about it. Another reason I agree with you is because this generation stands up for what they disagree with. They stand up and raise their voice for what they do not like and will like to change.

Recently I was looking at videos by young activists, and one of them is a good example of what I’m saying here. I’m especially inspired by the video by Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez at the United Nations, speaking about climate change because it is an issue that we are facing right now as society. He is 15 years old and he is conscious enough of what he is talking about. He is not scared of the old generation, he is standing up in front of more than 200 people from different countries.

"I began to look at the world around me and begin to learn about the issues that we are facing. I saw that we are facing a crisis that was beginning to affect every living system on our planet, I saw that climate change was going to be the defining issue of our time seeing this world seeing my world collapsing around me pushed me into action so for the last nine years since I was six years old I've been on the front lines of climate and environmental movenments standing up to fight for the future of our planet"

This is basically saying that he had part of its life learning and supporting the issues that he care about. From very early age he start to involve on it. Xiuhtezcatl is taking action by leading movenments and encourage others.

I’ve also been learning about different movements all around the world throughout history. The young protesters that I find most inspiring are the youth who led the Vietnam War protests in 1960's. It is emotional that students from the United States raise their voice even though they were in London. The young protesters encuorage the people in the United Sates to protest against the war. Also is clear example that government does not always agree to see people revel for what they desagree. During the protest students were assesinated by the army.

I think this history is a good example of something you said in your video: “I think this new generation is very profound and very strong and very brave because they are actually willing to go to the streets” I agree with you here, because sometimes going to the streets they risk their lives. However they are so brave to represent others and make changes but not only on this time if we look back to our history is a long list of younges who had being badass too.

Thanks for taking the time to read my letter. I look forward to seeing what you do or say next.
