A Question to any participants in the March For Our Lives marches...

I was answering/replying to another thread when something "clicked" in my head. I recall seeing something along these lines in a news article but while writing my comment the question really gelled. I went to Louisville's MFOL rally and was struck by how many older people , like me, were there. Had a few nice conversations but that's beside the point. At Louisville at least we had many many young people, high school and younger and many of us gray heads but not many in between those two "extremes". Very few and I mean VERY FEW 20/30 somethings were in attendance. My main question is : was it same at other events? We had terrible weather here for ours, cold and rain for the whole day but that didn't stop the kids and the grandparents from showing up. Where were the 20/30's?

I guess a secondary question would be, how can we motivate these people to come out?

NO Mr. Carter NO! Has Jimmy lost his mind?

..... I worked a phone bank in Colorado as a volunteer to help him get elected President. I've admired him ever since for the work he does for Habitat for Humanity. I've always had his back when talking about him and his Presidency. But this........ this I cannot stomach. I can only surmise that the Chemo has taken a toll. I am most disillusioned to say the least. NO, Mr. Carter NO! NO the pretender who sits in the oval office does NOT deserve to finish his term. He DOES need to be impeached. He DOES NOT "deserve the benefit of the doubt"!!!!! A sad day for me, especially after the uplifting I got from the MFOL rally yesterday.

"But my own preference would be that he not be impeached, but that he be able to serve out his term, because I think he wants to do a good job. And I'm willing to help him, if I can help him, and give him the benefit of the doubt." From his interview on CBS Sunday Morning. SMH
