As a follow up on my post about peaceful youth revolutions, it’s not just Middle Eastern youth who are altruistic and concerned about the welfare of others. I’m writing a book about global youth viewpoints, based on 11 questions. (If you know young people who would like to answer them, I included them below.) Here’s a summary of their responses when asked about their life purpose:
- Do good works, make the world better
- Personal: Be successful in my goals, be happy, have business success, learn
- Worship God and fulfill my destiny
4. Help parents Help country and the environment
Greetings from California. I’m writing a book that gives you and other young people around the world an opportunity to say what’s on your mind. I’m asking people age 19 and under to respond to 11 questions. I have translations in other language. See http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Global-Youth-SpeakOut/160382763986923.
Thanks, Gayle Kimball, Ph.D. firstname.lastname@example.org
