“Next Generation Survivors: A Collective Responsibility” is a celebration of the power of love, unity, community, and social awareness. By studying our history and past, we are better able to understand present events and our role in the bigger picture of life. We hope to shed light on the impact one person can make on a town, community, culture, or even the world, by tapping into the power of choice and emotional intelligence and identifying as victors, and not as victims. In this dialogue, the importance of the role that youth play in the future generations is highlighted, as we discuss ways in which we can spread collective responsibility, healthy communication and perseverance to all members of society.
