    Interestingly enough, my younger brother (20) recently went on a first date with a girl who was anti-abortion and anti-immigration. He said they had a nice time and had great chemistry but at the end of the date she expressed that their politics were too different and she didn’t think it would work long term. He was kind of bummed about this and he thought it was a shame that politics kept people from having relationships. I pointed out that if he ever got her pregnant those politics would seem a lot more important and he suddenly seemed less sad that it didn’t work out haha.

    My kids’ elementary school is having everyone do a project on human rights. My daughter is deciding between the attack on women’s rights in the US since Trump took office or a more local example about the need to ensure trans kids have access to whichever bathroom feels appropriate to them. When I was 11, I was doing projects on hamsters and feudal Japan, not abortion rights. I do wish they could enjoy the comparatively carefree childhood I had. Still, these kids are so open to everyone choosing what’s right for them, and are so passionate about it, it makes me quite proud of them and hopeful for the future.

      Our kids’ generation is badass. They shouldn’t have to save us from our dumb mistakes, but I believe they will.
