Millenials are MIA for marches

I marched for science on April 22 and for the climate on April 29. Looking around, I saw something disturbing — nothing but gray-haired, wrinkly skinned baby boomers. Where were the millennials? It's their future we were marching for. We're all going to be dead before we turn this planet into a smoldering cinder.

I'm sure the millennials think protest marches don't do any good. That's what the Germans thought in 1933. Just let this pass and everything will turn out OK. Fortunately, we boomers didn't think that way in the late '60s and early '70s, or we would still be at war in Southeast Asia.
