From now, you have to decide on whose side you are on. Are you for the generation that has failed us time and time again? And dealt wickedly with is during the protests? Or are you about looking for alternative and the new generation and using your platform and the gift of influence that you have to spread hope for a better future? Answer these questions now and choose your side. But whatever you choose, stay consistent”.
