2014年8月23日托福独立写作题目：Do you agree or disagree: Young people today are more likely to invest their time and effort on improving the world than young people in the past.
With the coming of the new millennium, with the booming of internet, with the acceleration of globalization, people have realized that this era varies radically. What’s the difference between young people in this era and young people in the past? Comparing to the last generation, young people today have more chances and resources, which, in turn, arouses their concerns to the society. So there will be more possibilities that contemporary generation contribute more time and labor to the improvement of the world.
First, let’s consider on capability. It’s obvious that young people today develop more skills on computer and internet. Internet has become their first choice for solving problems or promoting interesting events. They spend a lot of time surfing websites and logging in social nets, and the world is unconsciously changed in this way. Internationalization is a good example, in which, people, especially in metropolis all over the world, know the same hot events, talk the same topics, focus on the same concerns and accept the same opinions. Some people may have a debate on consequences coming with internationalization, but most people admit that civilization is improving globally. All these changes should be contributed to people who expose news, advocate ideas and exchange opinions on internet. It’s just because of their time that our world is improving.
Second, thanks to the development of media and advancement of education. Young people today learn more about social problems and concern more about humanities. A new invention of middle school students is a device to decrease discharge of exhausted gas from automobiles; a graduate from medical school becomes a Medicins Sans Frontieres to help the poor in poverty-stricken and trouble-occurring regions; young people volunteer to accompany the “empty-nest” elders in the neighborhood. These youth are making efforts to help the world. And I think, there will be more and more young people eager to do the same devotion.
The 21st century is a completely new millennium, emerging with booming of internet and high technology. Our world will become a global home more than ever before. Young people living in this era, no matter they are on initiative or with unconsciousness, are spending time and efforts to change the world.
In the past young people didn’t care about improving the world, so they never spent time improving it. That is why it is getting worse and worse. Young people today, however, care about the world very much so they are willing to invest their time in order to improve it. And the reason young people nowadays care about the world is because they still have to live in it for a long time and because they are more enlightened.
In the past young people did not spend time improving the world, so they must not have cared about it. I don’t know why they didn’t care about it because I am young and care a lot about the world. But I know they didn’t invest their time to improve the world because there are so many problems now. If young people in the past had made the effort to improve the world, there wouldn’t be so many problems. For example, the world is now facing a serious environmental problem. If young people in the past had recycled and done other things for the environment we wouldn’t have this big problem now. It seems those young people were too busy spending time on themselves.
Nowadays young people care very much about the world and are willing to spend their time to improve it. For example many of my friends and I often talk about the environment and we all agree we should solve the environmental problem. That is why we sometimes spend some time to clean the environment. For example, two years ago I saw some trash on the street. It would have been faster for me to walk past it. However, I decided to use some time to pick it up and put it in the trash. This shows that I care about the world and am willing to spend time to improve it.
I think that the reason young people care about the world and want to improve it is because they still have to live in the world for many more years. We don’t want to live in a dirty world. Instead we want to live in a clean place. And since the young people from the past don’t care about the world they don’t spend time to clean it. But today’s young people are more enlightened, so they are willing to invest more time to improve the world.
In the past young people didn’t spend their time improving the world. That is why young people today are faced with serious problems, such as the environment. But young people today are enlightened and value living their life in a clean world. They care about it so they are willing to invest their time.
