"It is a sentiment I've heard echoed in countries across the world, and that I now hear in my current job in Afghanistan and Pakistan: young people are at ready to be involved in political solutions , using whatever tools available. But the exciting thing is those tools are changing. It's not just Kalashnikovs any more. We are seeing young people in tremendously difficult circumstances turn to peaceful tools for reform: to Facebook, to Twitter, to nonviolent protest. The events of recent months, as youth-driven revolutions have swept the Arab world, are a testament to the power of youthful revolution to be not only powerful, but also peaceful."
"Now, more then ever, young people are at the very core of changing world events. You are at the core of changing world events."
"Engaging with and positively empowering youth are inextricably tied to our national security and prosperity." Ronan Farrow
