This week we asked: Q. With all that's going on in the world and domestically in the U.S., why are young adults not activists in the way they were in the 1960s?
• “Death by distraction. Young people are too preoccupied. Kids of the ‘60s didn't have social media on top of everything else.”
Amanda Warden, 26, Myrtle Beach
• I think today's young people are changing the world in their own ways. Social media content points to that. I know young people that are exceptional and care a lot.”
Todd Harms, 45, Pawleys Island
• “I think it's laziness, and we've seen the riots in the news, if it's not our problem we don't tend to get involved. But I think if you believe strongly enough you should fight for it.”
Lillian Santos, 24, Conway
