It’s too true that we can only appreciate something once we’ve lost it. I’m talking about voting and I’m talking about my generation.
As young Americans (cue the David Bowie song – thought: maybe I don’t belong in my generation?) I was expecting extreme campaigning and political activism on campus. I go to a school that at one point earned the moniker Berkeley East. Sadly, in 2012, voter registration is just too laborious of a process for students to care.
