What Do Kids Think?

The June 6 edition featured the El Encanto but it should’ve covered the thousands of high school students who graduated. The everyday person, especially the adolescent, deserves more attention than a hotel, even if it is a beautiful one and apparently “legendary.” We need to hear what the youth think of this world in which they are now becoming more influential. And we need to hear from a real cross-section, not just the successful kids but those who are genuinely in the middle of the road. I would like to know what they think of all this.
