"If you could change anything about the world, what would you change?"
The producers over at creative agency Soul Pancake (home of Kid President) asked people aged 0 to 100 years old (OK, and one 105-year-old) this question and their answers were deeper than you'd expect. The responses started out pretty average, like "no school" coming from a 9-year-old and an "I don't know, I like everything about the world right now" response from a 7-year-old. But as the subjects got older, their responses got wiser — and it didn't take long.
A 15-year-old wished we didn't focus so much on perfection. A 14-year-old said equality, "because we don't have that yet."
They reveal the issues our society has yet to overcome, but should.
Here are a few more things people would change:
"Inequality, in terms of people who are hungry and have no place to live, and people who have so much money they don't know what to do with it."
"The prison system in America."
"Stigmatism of mental illness."
"Overusing social media as a way to connect."
What would you change?
