11. Yes! And our youth have the boundless energy.

Would seem that involvement in a Young Democrats group would be good, and hopefully one with good leadership. Most states have them now but unfortunately, not so much in rural America.

Just as important, it's imperative for us old timers to take more interest in our youth and encourage them and help them sort out the good stuff from the chaff. Goodness knows, there's a constant onslaught of chaff on social media. No better way to help our youth than encouraging them to reduce their time on Facebook and Twitter, and replace it with "ladies and gentlemen" face-to-face dialog.

It also helps our side by getting youth involved with conservation projects, local politics, protest efforts, attending political meet-and-greets and just being good, compassionate neighbors. To me, that's ground-up liberal politics.

Best of luck with the young folks you work with and have a good week!
