The Future Is Bright: Little Boy Pledges To Tear Down Trump’s Wall

In Los Angeles on November 12, a young boy carried a sign in protest of the president-elect: “If he builds a wall, I’ll grow up and tear it down.”

Since news of the election results dropped, outraged Americans have hit the streets time and time again to express their rejection of president-elect Donald Trump, who collected his supporters based on a campaign fueled by animosity and intolerance. In the vast sea of protest signs, an unidentified little boy proudly held his up.

The sign reads: “If he builds a wall, I’ll grow up and tear it down.” The photo was taken by LA-based photographer Abigail Gordon, the Daily Dot reports.  

George Takei posted a similar photo on Twitter, and though some reactions were motivated by anger and antagonism (this comes as absolutely no surprise), many users were touched by the meaning behind it.

Critics of the photo feel that parents shouldn’t levy their political views on their young and impressionable children. There's no doubt, however, that this picture makes a strong statement, and one that may be absolutely necessary to incite change on a higher level.

One thing is certain: America’s youth is not staying silent, and the future leaders of America offer a message of hope.
