“Every time I come back from working on Perspective I am full of impressions because I’m surprised about how the youth is thinking, even shocked sometimes. But, even in situations when I recognize narrow-minded views in those young people I don’t want to blame them. Their parents, grandparents are speaking through their mouth, people who are influencing their minds way too much.”

The bravery of young – we should look for it and mine it in this country.”
