    I was wondering if you can help me rephrase the following sentence:
    "People have created civil wars within their own cities, mostly by youths because certain individuals do not fit within the social perspectives that they perceive society."

    ***NOT A TEACHER***

    Good morning.

    If I understand correctly, maybe you are seeking something like:

    Virtual civil war has been created in many large cities because certain individuals, mostly youths, do not fit into the expectations of the dominate culture.

    Have a nice day!
