Several weeks ago, 14 students and 3 teachers were murdered in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. At the outset, the response from the nation and our leaders seemed to be the same as it was for other mass shootings.
But something was different about this mass shooting. The surviving students, angry and grieving, were energized. Challenging the status quo, those in power and the NRA specifically, these kids are on the verge of making a breakthrough that adults have not been able to for far too long.
These kids are going to change the world. We have two choices: fight the change that should have happened a long time ago or let our youth create the change that they are demanding for their future and our future.
