  •  I think that we, as political parents, (6+ / 0-)

    have instilled in our children the knowledge that taking action can actually change things, or that it's worth it to try. Your daughter may not follow in your political footsteps - she and her generation will find their own way - but your activism has played a role in leading her to this moment, and to her own activism.

    I've seen it with my own kids. A good part of the time they roll their eyes at my latest project, but some of it gets through. When they make the leap they have their own ideas and agendas, but they absolutely take with them the lessons from their parents.

    I know the Occupy folks are of all ages, but I am so gratified to see the leadership roles young people are taking on, and that they're finding their way.
