I took this photo this evening at Madrid's Puerta del Sol, the epicenter in the last two months of the youth revolt against a political class that has lost values and is largely corrupt in a variety of ways.

Like any youth mass movement, this one has its own challenges to face. But there is little doubt already that it will be the hallmark of a generation. Here in Spain, and maybe elsewhere too.

The odds that I ever have another daughter again are very slim to say the least. But if I ever had one I'm thinking that I could call her Dignidad.  Not Esperanza. [Spanish readers will know why]
