The great American patriot, Abbie Hoffman, said this quote to young people while protesting CIA recruitment on college campuses in the 1980s, but it applies today, especially on one of the darkest days in American history, to the people born in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s:

"It is always the young that make the change. You don't get these ideas when you're middle-aged. Young people have daring, creativity, imagination and personal computers. Above all, what you have as young people that's vitally needed to make social change is impatience. You want it to happen now. There have to be enough people that say, ‘We want it now, in our lifetime.’ This is your moment. This is your opportunity. Be adventurists in the sense of being bold and daring. Be opportunists and seize this opportunity, this moment in history, to go out and save our country. It's your turn now."

Go get him, Millennials, this is your time.
