(This blog was written a couple weeks after the shooting at Douglas High School in Florida, killing 17 of the students and staff).
The young survivors of the horrific massacre at Douglas High School have done something that many adults haven't done...they've organized with a vision and plan of action toward change and they won't go away until real, necessary change happens and they feel safe. While many adults are offering hollow condolences and engaging in endless FB debates, these kids are burying their friends and teachers, marching in Washington D.C., showing up at congressional hearings and confronting some of the most feared organizations (NRA) in person.
Thank you millennials for showing us what it takes to be the change you wish to see in the world. Bring it on! Some of us older adults are right behind you!
Times are a changin.
