Generation Z is tougher than you might think. We can’t relate to millennials who grew up in the '90s bliss of brick cell phones and Tamagotchis. Those who knew a world before the Twin Towers collapsed, before mass shootings were live-streamed on Facebook and before climate change accelerated to a point of no return.
I’m graduating this December, but my biggest regret in college is never taking a gap semester from school. It feels cliché to say that college slips away quickly, but it really does. There’s a certain point as a senior where you feel old. Like really old. The sobering reality of working a nine-to-five for the next 30 years blindsides you with imminence, and three-year-old Snapchat memories make you long for time travel.

For a few years during my childhood, I grappled with an existential fear of dying. I loathed getting into cars, going on planes or just falling asleep — losing my consciousness and drifting into the unknown resembled death a little too closely. I remember being 12 and staring helplessly at my bedroom ceiling the night after watching the "Planet of the Apes" reboot movie. Not because superhuman apes ruled society, but because a pandemic was able to kill 99 percent of humans, and that seemed both possible and entirely out of my control.
Division within the Democratic Party was as visible as ever Tuesday night on the South Carolina debate stage. Discourse ranged from the feasibility of health care plans — all of which are fever dreams under Mitch McConnell's leadership — to allegations Michael Bloomberg told a pregnant employee to “kill it”. But it’s the question no one can objectively answer that will decide this primary: Who has the best chance at defeating Donald Trump and Republicans down-ballot?

Perrin de Jong spent his childhood in Chapel Hill exploring forests, wading through creeks and laying in a hospital bed trying to breathe. He didn’t understand why his asthma in the 1990s was so debilitating, so frequent — he certainly didn’t know a new UNC coal generation plant opened just miles away.
