A Marine’s response to the Million Student March, a walk out organized by petulant children who believe college education should be free, is making the rounds on social media.
While liberal 20-something college students are “marching” for more free stuff and handouts, one of their peers took an epic shot at their efforts.
James Erickson, a current member of the U.S. Marine Corps, took to social media and wrote, “I wanted money for school, so I marched too.” The caption was attached to a photo of Erickson participating in a 25-mile hike with his fellow Marines.

The response to Erickson’s tweet was overwhelmingly appreciative (HT Twitchy):
What a novel concept – earning what you want in life. A completely foreign concept on today’s college campuses.

“Nothing of value is free” – Perhaps that should be lesson number one taught during student orientation these days. This however, might be the most appropriate response of all to Erickson’s post.
‘Dayum’ is right. Entitled students today want everything handed to them on a silver platter. Marines and our other service men and women actually understand that things worth attaining require hard work and relentless effort.
Nothing is free. So stop with your walk outs and perceived grievances and get your asses back in class.
