Snowball fight Dupont Circle Washington, D.C. Feb. 6th 2010

This looks like fun. This is what young people do today. In the late 1960s and early 1970s Dupont Circle was the gathering point for many protests against the war in Vietnam. Young people the same age as the people in this video came out to protest the war. Not anymore it seems. Why? There are 2 wars going on and no protests in Washington, D.C. of any size. We used to get 500,000 people every weekend in DC to protest the Vietnam War. Now these kids just throw snowballs. Why? Because there is no draft. That is all I can think of. If there was a draft for the military the protests would start all over again I feel sure. Meanwhile kids keep throwing your snowballs. How times change.
