The younger generation is caught in a bind - understanding Quality of Life issues in SF.
by Francisco Da Costa
I always challenge the youth, more College and University students to use the education they imbibe and contribute what they have learned to Society at Large. It was not uncommon for us some years ago - to rent a van and bring the students from say SF State University to our Town Hall meetings. Then, take them home pass 10:30 am having arrived at the Town Hall at 7 pm. On occasion we broke bread and got to know one another - better. However, what really was of interest was permitting the students; to speak up, volunteer in the community - and get to understand the subtle guerrilla tactics - to tackle and defeat the pompous Big Developers that thought they had us by the balls. Today, they have been defeated and rightly so. Unfortunately, not everyone can use TWITTER and FACEBOOK as a tool - but, surely that is one way to do it. If we try to inform our youth - such tools, can deliver.
