The remarkable thing isn’t that they have now ousted two of the most powerful groups in the Middle East in the name of freedom. The remarkable thing is that this feat was accomplished by the youth of the nation. 50% of the population in Egypt is under 25. So I ask you by the time you were 25 what did you accomplish. To date I am currently 25. I am married college educated and employed. I have a half-finished book that I wrote the first page of as an undergraduate and I have over thrown 0 governments. I’m not trying to start a stir and I am certainly no anarchist. Yet in this country our youth don’t believe in themselves in the same way that they use to. Maybe it’s that many of us are children of the recession or came to age in it. You would think such crisis would shape our usually outspoken, unapologetic, entitled at times youth. But it hasn’t we sit back while Chase loses 2 billion on a bad bet. We sit back while there is an attack on women and civil liberties. We should all know that we have a voice. We have the power to change legislation if we could simply lift our eyes past the posts about relationships and movies and parties to see the pain afflicted on our people. In 100 years what will you be remembered for? Or will you even be remembered at all.
