There is a cultural shift happening in the United States. Young people are taking to the streets and demanding action on gun reform and school safety. The ones who are old enough are registering to vote. They are creating real change and it’s going to last.
The future leaders of our country are rising up. They are here to tell us that we have failed them so they are taking matters into their own hands. They’re mad as hell and they’re not going to take our inaction anymore.
I, for one, am glad to see it. Thank you young people for showing up and speaking up in a big way for the kind of common sense change that I’m still baffled we adults could not accomplish.
Some adults wouldn’t listen to other adults when we spoke up to try to protect you. So, hopefully they will listen to you. I hope you will help guide us to a brighter future.
Here’s my appeal to you, young people, if you are reading this. Don’t stop with school safety. Keep going. Call the adult world out on all of our B.S. Help us change our culture in ways we can’t seem to do on our own. Use your idealism to promote a future in which men and women are equal, where people of all colors are treated fairly by law enforcement, where peace prevails and love becomes the law of the land.
We hear you, Young America. Keep speaking, keep marching, keep striving to build the world you want to live in.
