Pray for Venezuela

I'm sure most  of you have seen or heard the phrase "Pray for Venezuela", which has been trending in social media but do you guys know what is really going on there? I didn't. I usually refrain from watching any world news or TV in general because off all the sad stories reported daily, but I decided to look into what is going on in Venezuela because of all the attention the younger age group was giving this issue and because it sits close to home for me. In class these past few weeks, we've talked about the dominant discourses, preconceived ideas and overall assumptions we have of teenagers in the US but what about in other countries? I'm sure that some, if not most of what we've talked about in class will probably still hold to be true in other countries but lets take a look at what these teens in Venezuela are doing for their country and their freedom. Please take a couple of minutes of your time to watch this video and PRAY FOR VENEZUELA!
