Lady of the Sun.
"What They did not want you to ever find out is that your generation,  the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby  Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political  reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you  sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your  education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave  you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with  endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly  by as They ran the world. I think They thought you were too dumb to  notice. Indeed, I thought They had won. But I watched  you occupy the capital of Wisconsin. I see you today as you occupy Wall  Street. And I see a spark, a glimmer of the glorious new age that is  yours. A changing of the guard, a guard that has stood for entirely too  long and needs your young legs to take his place. I watch you  turn away from what is easy and stand up for what is right. I see you  understand we as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. I see  you wise beyond your years. And I am proud. Give ‘em hell, kids. You  are beautiful.” -Kate Danley
