Millennials In America

Millennials are often targeted for being extremely verbal for their opinions; lets continue the trend.

Millennials In America

The world today is evolving and the generations that have come before mine (I'm a millennial) are extremely dissatisfied with the actions of my generation. Millennials represent change across the nation but are targeted because of the extreme actions of just a few. I have read social media posts written by adults that I have known for my entire life where they bash an entire generation because apparently standing up for what you believe in equates to blatant disrespect. I am generally a person who "plays by the rules" but as my generation is targeted I am becoming more outraged with the backlash to which peaceful protests and a push for change receive from our parents and grandparents. I can admit however that violence is in no way the correct way to spread your agenda, but because protesting exists please get over your assumption that all protesting movements are just "cry baby" or "snowflake" liberal movements.

Hatred in America currently is flowing from the east to west coast; it is driving the nation between liberals and republicans because each side cannot be open minded to the other. I myself am a Democrat, and a millennial; this therefore makes me "A liberal snowflake cry baby" in the words of the famous Tomi Lahren. Apparently, because I agree with the black lives matter movement, the DAPL movement, and gay rights I am ruining this nation. The constitution protects the right to free assembly, and speech but anymore these rights are scrutinized because a handful of activists resort to forms of violence.

Social media, in my opinion, is ruining America NOT the young people of this nation. Those of you who spread false news, and extreme propaganda to your pages are just as responsible as the person doing the same thing, but from an opposing view. I am a millennial but I am not disrespectful, hateful, or violent, I stand up for what I believe in and do not let others influence my opinions. I am also not the only millennial who is a decent human being and would like to say that if you are "hating" my generation STOP. People from all generations and all walks of life are becoming involved with what is happening within the boarders of this nation; my suggestion is that you be optimistic for the future, and to not spread hate for the generation who is making big changes.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
