I'm just amazed sometimes!
I was recently in a discussion with some young people regarding the direction the Left should take to counter the Right wings stranglehold on America. Every time I get to be involved with one of these discussions, I am just amazed at how bright and well informed our young people truly are. Their ability to communicate, their understanding of the issues, and their commitment makes me proud of every one of them. Many of them could have easily been leaders in the 1960s. I constantly wonder what it missing from this equation? Is it that they talk too much and act too little? Do they have too many distractions? Are they too comfortable? I always imagine them to be like a stack of gold coins. I wonder where the fire will come from to melt them into one solid brick. And finally, I wonder who among them will throw that brick through a White House window.
