The author offers his views on the struggles faced by teenage activists in fighting for what they truly believe in. He argues that the high of activism in nothing compared to the low, low feeling they often receive in response. His only hope is for other people to appreciate the time they have dedicated to their cause although he feels they do not need to have someone agree with them to feel appreciated.
