We are a culture that celebrates youth. But is being young really all it's cracked up to be? As Morrie Schwartz said during one of his Tuesday interviews with host Mitch Albom, "I know what a misery youth is, so don't tell me it's so great...cause I know better."

Let's take a step back from our micro-aggressions and realize that real aggression is taking place right now in the world, with millions of people being...
