As an active member of Occupy Wilmington, I am frankly appalled by your statement. We have members of all ages, from in utero through adulthood. Because a person is under the age of 18, does not mean that they are not relevant. Shelby is a bright and articulate member. He has contributed lots to our group. Not only in his actions, but in his views as well. The 99% is not composed solely of adults who think they know best, as that is what gotten us into our current national situation. No, the 99% is comprised of everyone. Our children are our future leaders. We must ensure that they are aware of the world around us. It has no longer become satisfactory to sit at home and hope the world changes itself. I promise if we the people do nothing, your world will change, but not in the way you would like it.
I'm curious as to why you have decided to offer such an opinion of a person you know nothing about. It is wiser to understand a person's position before you bash it, in my opinion.
I offer this as a rebuttal to your statement:
If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything. This young man took it upon his self to seek knowledge and understanding, for that he was arrested. As you sit in the warm glow of your computer screen I ask you, what do you stand for? Where is your conviction? Surely, there must be something you are brave enough to fight for?
