Are the Youth of today Writing the Future?

After viewing this TEXYouth day talk:


I'm compelled to ask who is really writing the future? If youth are the spearhead of change, then what can they do to fulfil their responsibility?

      Jan 15 2014: I disagree with you on that. Although I cant deny that Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg... change the world but they are not unique. This world is very diversified and it is a sum of many fields. If history and future are development of technology, medicine.., the world will become dry so much. The real show thats: economic decides all other factors very much, so business men and economists are very important. Besides, Education has always brought a special mission critical decisions about the future of every person, every family, every nation and all mankind; and teachers and lecturers will contribute to change the world.
      Each nation has history with wars. If we had no heros, politicians, leaders, would we have present, much less future.
      Future is not only good but also bad. Every person cant live alone, they are affected by others. So every person is a part who will write history.
