Julia Hirsch Posted almost 4 years ago How do you feel about the responsibility of the government towards the young people (18-25) regarding the economic and financial crisis? A few years ago, John Mayer wrote a popular song: "Waiting for the World to Change," and it's been called a song for this generation. I question that mantra. Of course it is the government's responsibility to support our youth, as evidenced by Obama's announcement this week about college loan tuition. BUT, my generation stopped a war. It is up to this generation to not "wait for the world to change," but to take action to force that change. I'm thrilled that the younger generation is stepping up with the "Occupy Wall Street" protests. We need more leaders of that generation. We've all become too complacent.
