America in the Next Five Years

 

Terrorist attacks, majority changes for minority groups, the depletion of the middle class, racial tension, high unemployment, crash of oil prices, and so much more. We, as Americans, are in a downward spiral of intolerance, lack of leadership, discontent, and the failure to form a progressive dialog for our future generations.

We have all heard our parents say that dreaded phrase, “When I was your age!”. We all swear we will never use this phrase with our children.
