Blackhorse 70V is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

College students used to represent the intelligent voices of the future. Thanks to them, you don't have to worry about being drafted. Or segregated. And you can vote. They were the ones who proved that not everything is inevitable.

Many of my contemporaries have said that we would have been out of the Middle East years ago if we still had a draft, thereby forcing the issue onto college students. We came from a generation that believed everyone has a duty to their country (ala Kennedy, though it didn't start with him). Some served in uniform, many others became involved in issues that concerned the nation. And they made changes.

I, too, believe that web censoring is going to be attempted by every government. As to whether or not it remains in place is up to the people.
