|I am glad I don't have one of these working for me.|
Case in point: I called one of my millennial activist friends and she said sort of: I am giving up politics for a while. It is making me too stressed. I am concentrating on other things. Not to knock this young woman because she is better than most, but she has just recently been on glorious vacations abroad that you and I might have waited our whole life for. Vacations are suppose to be a stress reliever.
Anyway, I said I understand because I know my stress level with politics, but I really don't understand. This was one of our activists but someone I also know takes a lot of time to have fun. She was someone we could count on from the younger generation. Now she is back to having fun and I guess recycling to clear her conscience. The old bags are back to literally holding the bag. The millennials too easily toss activism to the wind and vacate on stuff they have started. It just ain't fair.
So when people say the millennials will change the fabric of our country, I say: Only if it is their whim at the time, will they vote or volunteer. Totally useless so far to get too much accomplished beyond riding a bike for a cause....
I wouldn't waste my time campaigning to them. They might vote every 4 years in a presidential race, maybe...if it suits them.
