We need to love these young activists

I'm so impressed with these young people. What a transformation for some of them. We need to love them, thank them and encourage them. Our leaders are rising up. I hear disappointment from some of them but let's tell them how dynamic they are and how the country will look back at their actions now and say that was the start. The dreamers, owe, ferguson activists around the country-thank you thank you.
I remember in 1965 the 1st war protest I went to. It seemed like such s hopeless failure but we learned and pushed on and made mistakes and got worn out but some rose up and learned to lead. The politicians are not going to change things. You are going to change the politicians. Thank you.

1. Absolutely, gwheezie! These young activists are smarter and more thoughtful than me.

It is their future and their present as well. Younger folks are always going to do things differently from their elders. In this case, they are demonstrating to all that they can do peaceful demonstrations with great regard for others. As well they should.

Have a wonderful day!

4. Please thank her for me

I met some ows folks a few years ago and that they were terrific and now listening to the dreamers and ferguson groups I'm so impressed. I met some also when I was protesting the vagins probing with foreign objects the rightwing loons were so hot over.
I see some of these ferguson folks and even in a short period of time you can see them grow. Just a wonderful generation. We handed them a load of crap and they're going to change the country
I have great hope for them.
