I am a baby boomer. Part of the Woodstock generation. We questioned authority, embraced our right to be heard, and insisted on equality for all. What happened to us?

We have become cynical, sedentary and complacent. Our voices have voluntarily become silent. Where is the needed protest over the Trump administration’s corruption and censorship? Where did our concern for the environment go? Why are we not concerned about the generals making decisions involving possibly going to war with North Korea?

How can we sit silently by as the Dreamers watch the clock running out on their right to stay in the only country they have known? How is it that walls instead of bridges are now this country’s priority?

We once valued authenticity; we now accept untruths as business as usual. We are told not to take the president’s words literally.

Our generation has more money and time than any other demographic. We can and should try to make our society a better place. Change is not easy — losing a part of your democracy is a lot harder.

We are being led mainly by the people from my generation. Maybe there was some truth to the old mantra we once embraced, “don’t trust anyone over 30.”

People problem

Every time there is a tragic shooting the first thing we hear is gun control. It will never be the answer. The man charged with shooting the two Westerville police officers was by law unable to get a gun, but he got one.

We do not have a gun problem but a people problem.

Abnormal president

A normal, honest, innocent president would be extremely concerned about Russian meddling in the election process and actually would do something about it to help prevent this from happening again. Instead, this president sides with Vladimir Putin and attacks the FBI and other government agencies, claiming this was all a hoax and a witch hunt.

Now that Russian meddling has been proven, Trump lies that he never said it was a hoax. This insane, ignorant, incompetent president needs to be impeached immediately.

Dribble and drivel

Fox News host Laura Ingraham recently called on LeBron James to “shut up and dribble.” Apparently she is suggesting a course of action and a return to what he does best. Toward that end, I have some advice for her, “Just butt out and drivel.” I’ll take LeBron. He doesn’t pander fake news.

God’s children

To those who belittle and insult others — we are all God’s children. The only difference is the color of the paint. He loves everyone, even those who use gutter talk and speak with a forked tongue.

God is not hard of hearing and I think he is not hearing “love your neighbor.”
