Three 15-year-olds from Virginia Beach Friends School in Virginia Beach, Va., share their views on how the U.S. could better spend the $1 trillion it spends yearly on the military.

This is one of 25 official selections for the third annual "If I Had a Trillion Dollars" youth film festival, which asks young people to speak out on the federal budget via short videos that answer the question “what would you do with $1 trillion—for yourself, your family, and your community.” The youth are asked to consider the $1 trillion spent yearly on the U.S. military; the $1 trillion spent on the wars abroad, and the $1 trillion plus in tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.
