The Rebelution

March 19th, 2008 / 3 Comments

There is a general consensus that teenagers nowadays are materialistic, selfish, and have no worthwhile goals in life.

We don’t want our teenagers to go down that road. Enlist Today

Yes, there is hope!

The Rebelution is a movement started by two teenage boys to challenge other teens to go against the grain of that culture. Their motto is “DO HARD THINGS”.

Teenagers doing HARD THINGS is an oxymoron, isn’t it?? The Rebelution is changing that.

What does it mean? DO HARD THINGS is “how we build character and competence. It won’t drop to meet the low expectations, it won’t just do what comes easily, and it won’t become complacent. It applies no matter who you are or what level you’re on, because there’s always something harder to do, something that will take you outside your comfort zone and cause you to grow.”

Stop the laziness. Get up and do the right thing, even if it’s a hard thing to do. This message is counter-cultural for this generation.

I support this movement. It’s going to get this society back on the right track.
