Though I am on my 3rd College kid, this only dawned on me a couple of days ago. It had not occurred to I earlier.

Compared to US in the 1960s & 1970s today’s College kids are a bunch of WIMPS!

What happened?

How did it happen?

When did it happen?

Have YOU noticed. We never hear of sit-ins, protest marches or student demonstrations.

U.S. Universities & Colleges do NOT appear to have Student Unions!

Ah! No Student Unions.

This is crazy.

Today’s kids just whine to their parents via social media. They refuse to take matters into their own hands & sort it out.

What happened?

This happened way, way before COVID.

This is GREAT — JUST GREAT — for Colleges, organizations & politicians.

Meek, voiceless, impotent students.

Wow. We took on Governments.

Yes, I was a radical. Whenever I think back to my College days, I do not recall the lecture rooms. But, I do remember the sit-ins, the Student Union building, protest marches.

I need to look into this. IF you can help I will be most grateful. Thank you.

We have to FIX this.
