The student protests in the wake of the Florida shooting are a sign of something bigger. Bob Lefsetz says it is about the “frustration with the status quo, the youth of this country are fed up with the expedience of their elders, who’ve sold out to their pocketbooks.”I couldn’t agree more. As I tweeted last night, “the response to this tragic event encapsulates the great struggles of our time: old men hanging onto a past that does not exist & a new generation that is fighting for a future it wants to build.” I am betting on the future, and thus I am with the youth of the country., We need to build a world for them, not for those hesitant to embrace change.
