Kids Are Doing More Than We Think

Mother Jones has published a list of what students across the country are accomplishing.

Some of this I already knew; some came as a pleasant surprise.

    My wife works at a small college here in "Hicksville" (not real name), and they may be small, but they have their politics down to perfection! This area is extremely conservative as you might guess. In the short time we've been here, I've seen these kids mount rallies and campaigns, that while I hated the message, I was frankly envious of the way it was presented. I've worked with professional "get out the vote" drives that weren't that well put together and presented.

    On the high school front, my baby brother and his friend are involved in sponsoring Iraqi children who require medical attention from injuries sustained in the war--their project is Raising Smiles and they're working closely with Global Medical Relief Fund who have a fair amount of other student groups contributing to the effort. It's really so wonderful to see kids getting involved and being knowledgeable.

    That's great Jen. If you hear any more of those stories, send them our way. I have nothing against posting good news for a change.

    Great to see that some American kids are aware and active, the opposite of their parents. In Australia, their numbers appear to be very small! Cheers!
