I am a parent of three kids under 5 years of age, and I don't know what their future's will look like. This is true for every parent of any age, but there are certain frightening realities both my generation and my children's generation face. We will not have the same opportunities or access to wealth that our parent had. No longer can it be assumed that if you work hard you will be able to achieve financial success and stability. No longer can it be assumed that if you buy a house it will be a solid investment, increasing in value over the years.
We have an opportunity to reach out to a growing social action. We have all seen the rising numbers and attention the various Occupy Wall Street groups have garnered and I think that we could bring some important images and direction to these gatherings.
