“We are the generation of the Che Geuvera tee-shirt.”
I could not agree with Nicholas Handler more. I was very recently discussing the Che Guevera tee-shirt with other members of “our” generation, and we were laughing at how absurd it is that we wear his face as if he were David Bowie. The closest positive image that we seem to represent (or at least the youth of liberal colleges like Middlebury) is a climate-change-aware generation.
I do believe we can collectively grow up to do good deeds for this world. But first we have to stop thinking Che Geuvera was cool, and replace a tendency towards apathy with a hunger for knowledge.
