People of the world are so interrelated by economics, whether we like it or not [“Markets plunge on British vote,” News, June 25]. There is no going back.

The British vote to exit from the European Union was cast by angry, unheard British elders who have now laid a debilitating futurefor Britain’s youth. I hope there is a referendum vote to recant the exit, and I hope that message resonates in the United States in who we elect as president.

There is no going back, no matter how good it sounds to assuage our anger and frustration.
