VALENTINE’S DAY 2018
~SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER~
Count the days.
It’s been a few days past 90 days.
I must confess that I have been in a funk since the elections of
November 8, 2016. I have experienced a gamut of emotions ranging from anger, disbelief, desperation, bafflement and so much more.
I saw no way out until the Parkland students in Florida began their movement.
I am rooting for them.
I’m rooting for the young people of this country.
They will be the ones to effect change. It’s their time. The old dinosaurs in government will see the effect of the young on them.
I have their backs!!
… ‘AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD’ …
April 19th, 2018
America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern. We mourn. Offer thoughts and prayers. Speculate about the motives. And then – even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns; even as the majority of gun owners support common sense reforms – the political debate spirals into acrimony and paralysis.
This time, something different is happening.
This time, our children are calling us to account.
The Parkland, Florida, students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can’t even vote yet.
These young activists rock!!
‘Surviving is easy, it’s learning to live again that’s hard’.
Parkland school massacre survivors bravely pose for the cover of Time magazine declaring ‘enough is enough’ ahead of worldwide march for gun reform.
