  1. I would choose “NOW”. I am not a 20 yr old and I have not taken to the streets in protest but yet prefer to protest with my votes, dollars and word of mouth. This picture/article/piece is a pretty ignorant statement if my sense is reading the implied message correctly.
    See giving everything and wanting everything is inter changeable in my perspective. Our families and people in 1944 who dealt with 50+ million casualties in the second world war gave what they had too, often times their lives. They gave all because they wanted all. They wanted peace, freedom, life and liberty for all.
    The 20 somethings referenced in this 2011 image are giving “all” that is required at this time also. Sadly for the same things, the things that have evaded the human population at large in spite of WW2; peace, freedom, life and liberty.
    It begs the question If the youth of today and the youth of 1944 are fighting for the same things then why have the intended outcomes not been met?
    One of the signs in the 2011 picture reads “power is for us the people” which I would wager all, was the sentiment of the young men in the 1944 picture.
    I would further wager that when the time comes where the human rights of people on a global scale are being tread upon its these youth (2011′s) that will the first to stand against that tyranny with their lives. Would you? and yours?
    I applaud our youth in both cases. And I pray that the seemingly on coming train of one world government through the United Nations Agenda 21 is derailed before our youth have to engage in another world war (people vs. crony banksters).

  2. Amen, brother! My mother was 20 years old in 1944 and was in the RCAF. When her father was 20 years old, he was in the British army and was a P.O.W. in Germany. Today’s 2o-year-olds have a lot to learn.

  3. I would like to clarify my remarks in the previous comment. I was agreeing with Charles and NOT with Shane. The 20somethings of 2011 are a bunch of entitled whiners who probably have never done a good day’s work in their lives. They are certainly not putting their lives on the line like their counterparts in 1944.
