We care more than you think

As I have yet to read Eat, Pray, Love, I'm going to mosey on back to the election topic so I can defend my generation of voters. Now Grandma made the comment in one of her posts that it's time that "younger voters get involved and make their vote count." Here is a link to an article where two twin teenagers are doing just that...

They have created, which is a grassroots movement getting people involved in Huckabee's campaign. Last I checked there were 14,507 recruits supporting Huckabee just through this Web site. Now I know that Huckabee is basically done considering the recent primaries, but isn't it incredible that two twin teenagers started something that created a following of more than 14,000 people. If that doesn't show that one (or in this case two) people's efforts can make a difference I don't know what will. In addition, Alex and Brett Harris also created, which is a teenage rebellion against low expectations. Alex and Brett along with other teens are showing the world that they have character and competence. So the next time you think today's youth are lazy, just don't care about the world they live in, or selfish remember these twins and how they are changing the world one Web site at a time and inspiring other teens to shake the stereotypical image of today's youth.
