This photo is extremely telling of just how far some in our society have fallen in the past decades. I long for the days of the Greatest Generation and their dedication to real sacrifice and courage. Occupy Wall Street protestors will never know what it is like to storm the beaches of Normandy, instead, they only know how to storm around the streets of our cities demanding more free stuff without lifting a finger to actually earn what they want. It truly is pathetic and sad.
I would like to point out that the percentage of the population actually involved in or supporting the "20-year-olds in 2011" is small, but the entitlement attitude in America is completely out of control. This also gives us an opportunity to thank the 20-year-olds in 2011 who are opposite of the occupiers: our young men and women serving voluntarily in our armed forces in the fight for freedom against radical Islam. In an age when true sacrifice is rare, we should be thanking them even more.
