Dear Cleveland,

I feel many adults stop the youth from speaking our mind. I feel they do this because they know they have the power to. If we are expressing the way we feel about something or a situation that took place, if they don’t like it, the conversation would be over. All because they use the advantage they have over us as youth. Sometimes we are right and sometimes we are wrong. Either way, I feel the adults should talk to us and explain to us why we are right or wrong. They should not abuse their power, which many of them do and other adults do not notice.

Sincerely,

JaNiyah
