National Youth Day

Piper Z.

Today is a not very well-known holiday, but with quite the powerful message. India recognizes National youth day today to honor Swami Vivekananda, one of India’s greatest social leaders. He believed that every child was the future and that they could bring social change. We can see this now with several movement lead or faced by youth, like Greta Thunberg leading changes for climate justice, or how Parkland school students lead the gun control movement.
