Legal At Last!


When we celebrate a birthday between the ages of 16 and 18, we gain new rights: the right to leave school, the right to learn how to drive, the right to vote. We enjoy being able to do new things as we are accepted by society as young adults rather than as children. However, with these rights, there also comes responsibility. Movies and popular culture tend to downplay the responsibility that comes with each right. However, when we fail to acknowledge the responsibilities, we can often end up causing lots of hurt for ourselves and for others. How will you use the rights you have today?
