As you know, we are coming to the end of a streak of years terminating with the word "teen." We have had a fun eight years, filled with laughter and brilliant wordplay, but as that is coming to a close we need to get more serious and taking advantage of opportunities that may be quickly disappearing. After 2019, the window for teen-themed year names will be closed for a whole ninety-six years. 

Additionally, the late two thousands have been sorely underrepresented in the modern day. As of this writing, most teens in film and television live either in the present day, a dystopian future, or have been around for quite a while, as is the case with Archie and his horrible friends. There is a decade-sized gap in our hearts where, by all means, late millennial nostalgia should be.

As this teen fears, this trend may leave the child-adults of modern America feeling like their youth was worthless. While it may not fix the root of the problem, dedicating the last teen-based year to the teens of today and yesterday will leave them feeling like they aren't worth nothing.

For this reason I propose, for this year of Collaborate-Teen (Stronger Together), the quasi-recent ex-teens of the modern world joins their voices as one to make sure that nobody misses out on this very good pun. Time is running out. The teens are losing hope. But with the power you have, you wonderful brothers can change everything.
