Email: About your blog

I understand what you are saying, and I commend you for standing up for what you believe in. But I also understand what the protesters are saying. Many of them aren't unemployed willingly. They are unemployed because big companies are screwing over the little guy. Instead of taking a paycut in their six figure paychecks every week so that the little guy can still earn an income, they are choosing to get rid of him so they can sit back in their chairs and watch the government bail them out.
Even college isn't helping. Employers want people with college experience, that has been true for years. Unfortunately, those are the same employers who aren't hiring. And as for the Mcdonalds of the world, they would rather hire someone young because they will work for less pay. People over 40 won't get hired.
I am not going to criticize you for being young. That's actually refreshing to see someone of your age concerned about the economy, and saying something about it. You would be hard pressed to find someone twice your age who's as informed as you are. But you are only 13. You haven't tried to get a job yet. You wont be able to fully understand how hard it is until you try for yourself. Chances are, you won't get the first, second, or even third job you apply to. You will really start to understand why these people are protesting when you experience it for yourself. 
Keep your beliefs of a hard working society. That is what the future needs. But also keep and open mind about what's going on now when it's time for you to get a job later.
