MY LETTER TO THE EDITOR, NEW YORK TIMES 11 June 2020

The Protesters Know the Future is Bleak

To the Editor:
The amount of protesters across America is staggering. While George Floyd’s murder was the trigger, the underlying cause is that people under 40 are worried about climate change, pollution, the widening gap between rich and poorer, and the current mess our democracy is in.

In my 90 years I’ve observed some terrible things, but the future for our young generations is bleaker, and they sense it.
