The Young Ones Are Our Future

Helsinki, Finland

As a humanist traveling halfway across the world, this photo reminds me why I do what I do right now.

The photo was taken while I was traipsing in Helsinki yesterday morning. I chanced upon meeting this group of youngsters sitting at the steps of the Finnish Parliament House.

Never mind that it was so hot outside and that they were just a group of young people with placards. But the messages they were saying were worth remembering. Save the planet. Save humanity.

These youngsters are our future. They have the love to come out and do something worth it. They translated their ideas into action.

As a humanist of HAPI, I am reminded that we should always have that spark that these youngsters possess.

In order to better the world, change has to start from all of us.
