High school students are stepping up. Where are the college students?

Do college students protest anymore? I don't hear about it. It's their future thats on the line. The gun problem is just one of the many problems that is wrecking our country. College students should be protesting about many issues.

The pursuit of happiness is not the pursuit of money. It's the pursuit of dignity. Human rights, equal rights, workers rights, fairness.

What good is a high paying job if you have none of the above, money will not make you happy if you have none of the above. College students should be protesting their asses off. Greed is wrecking their future. It's wrecking our country. It's right in front of our faces.

3. This will effect generations of who young people support

And it won't be the Russian party of trump ,formerly the gop. College students know who's to blame for this too.

4. The college students have loans and obligations that we in the 60's did not have.

If they get arrested, it may prevent them from getting a good job. They are in the position that the adults were in the past. Protest and loose your job.

5. What about me?

 

I am 58 years old and I have fought, protested, raised hell my entire life. Most of my life is over. Young people, college people have their whole lives in front of them. They should be fighting like hell for what is right.

7. Actually from the marches I've been to (since Trump)

It is not high school students, but middle school students that I believe will really make a difference. This is the age that the Sandy Hook kids would be now.
