A Portrait Of My Generation


Angela Martinez, Writer

“Bystanders” is what our generation has been seemed to be labeled as. Were apparently the generation that seems to take our phones out and recorded everything we see rather than actually taking a step into the problem or situation and helping someone in need. Recently there has been happening so many violent acts between teenagers where there are so many bystanders yet no one tends to help the person. We just tend to take pictures or videos to post on social media and see everything happening in front of our eyes. Yet in my defense I feel as anyone can call us “bystanders” yet knowing that if they were in a situation where something was happening they wouldn’t move a muscle. Grown adults seem to want teenagers to take charge in such dangerous acts. Yet were only kids.
