Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Young people enjoy life more than older people do. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer. Be sure to use your own words. Do not use memorized examples.

In today's world, we see the youth partying, enjoying and having fun at places like beaches, resorts and waterfalls while the older people mostly sit in their home, passing their time by working on a monotonous job. Both defend their choices and in their respect it feels right. But I believe that the young people certainly cherish life more than older people as they are bold, physically and mentally fit and instinctive. First of all, the younger generation in most families around the world has less responsibilites as compared to the adults. This is because they don't have to be responsible for family relations and income and other matters concerning the outsiders. This allows them to take more risks and try new things which in turn makes them happier and enjoy the moment. For example, a young child has the independecne to change his job as he does not have to meet a minimum monthly income. Thus, the child loves this independence and enjoys as it allows him to work in the company he likes. Secondly, the physical and mental strength of a young one is better than any adult. The body has strong immunity and can respond faster to diseases and illnesses. Having such a fit body allows them to participate in dangerous but exciting things in life. For example, an adult would be scared to try out MMA, high jumps or to go on an adventure. Such demanding things excite the younger ones and make them savour every moment of life. Finally, some might argue that it is actually the adults who are enjoying the life in long term by arguing that the youth is too focused on short term happiness and forgets about the long term effects of taking risks and exploring the unexplored. But I believe it is the instinctive nature of them which allows them to enjoy the present moment as they do not worry about the future which is uncertain at present. To sum up, adolescents love and enjoy life more than senescents as they have the audacity to take risks, power in their body and presence of being in the moment attitude.
