Subject: RE: BS: Washington Anti-War Protest
Actually, if it is mostly over 50's protesting, I think its more significant than when youth are protesting.
Lets face it, most of those over 50, vote and pay taxes. We are, in fact, the leaders of the 21st century. At least they can't write us off as a bunch of hippies like they tried to do in the 60's.
Think about it. What were your parents doing in the 60's when you were protesting Viet Nam? If they were anything like mine, they were freaking out about long hair and pot, not the war.
Oh - I'm gonna start a new thread. What was your parents reaction to the peace protests of the 60's?
