I am completely speechless at the fact the article "Seventeen Years Old" by Sara B. explains the truth of growing up. In our society we are told many things which have an impact on the way we portray ourselves. It seems in our society that children and teenagers are growing up too quickly. We are surrounded by so much technology and filters that somehow challenge our growth development. It saddens me that the world has such a big hit at such a young age. Every child should be able to grow and enjoy their childhood.
