"I think the young people, especially, need to discover, eventually, that hope is not something that is given to them by a politician or a corporation or anybody else.

And when you can DO that, and when you can act, respond intelligently to these things, you can become a confident person. And when you're confident, competent, you become hopeful. Because you have reason to believe that you can affect what's happening...in the future."
