The sculpture explains it all even if you don’t read the article below.

Father Of Parkland Shooting Victim Sculpts Haunting Image Of Child Hiding Under Desk
Manuel Oliver created “The Last Lockdown” partially using 3D printing

Artist Manuel Oliver, who lost his 17-year-old son Joaquin during the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has created a striking sculpture depicting a child hiding under a desk to signify when a school is on lockdown.
The statue is one of 10 being shown across the country during voter registration drives, specifically in congressional districts where politicians back the gun lobby. The title of the project is “The Last Lockdown.”

The figures were created using 3D printers, an intentional reference to the debate over guns potentially being 3D printed.

The desks are real school desks.  “We want you to feel unsettled,” the project’s co-creator Sean Leonard said. 

Oliver and Leonard teamed up with Giffords, the gun reform group founded by former congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

Giffords is a mass shooting victim herself, being left partially paralyzed after a lone gunman opened fire at a meet-and-greet in Tucson, Arizona, in 2011.

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’ … 

RedLineBBARACK OBAMA

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.

“WE DEMAND TO LIVE”

Joaquín Oliver

“The last day I saw my son was Valentine’s Day, so he was bringing flowers for his girlfriend.

We all have the right to react however we want. But the way we react will also be part of who you are. I lost my son and my best friend which is very painful. I can just be sad or fight.

It shouldn’t be the ‘new normal‘ to think that our kids could be targets.

This is not about me. This is not about how I feel. This is about my son. He’s part of what the kids are asking for.

Those kids you saw in Washington now have a new member.

Joaquín has a voice.”

Republican Rep. Steve King’s Campaign …. “🙄 Attacks Emma González Look …. ‘GREAT’ …. Not Good 🙄 …. Egg on your Face! …. “!!

ATTACKS ON EMMA GONZALEZ CONTINUE

She must be doing something right when adults and right-wingers chose her as a target of their inane comments.

Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King’s campaign team mocked the “look” of Parkland shooting survivor Emma González in a meme published to King’s Official Facebook Page Sunday, March 25, drawing criticism from shooting survivors.

It’s part of a wave of recent attempts to discredit Gonzalez and other survivors as they call for legislation to address gun violence. 

The item includes an image of González with tears streaming down her face at Saturday’s March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., as she recalled the 17 lives lost at her school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida.

The accompanying text criticizes González’ Cuban heritage, seeming to reference the Cuban flag patch seen on her sleeve. 

“This is how you look when you claim Cuban heritage yet don’t speak Spanish and ignore the fact that your ancestors fled the island when the dictatorship turned Cuba into a prison camp, after removing all weapons from its citizens; hence their right to self defense,” the post says.

FOUND TONIGHT

HamilDrop: Ben Platt & Lin Manuel Miranda Mashup “Found Tonight”

FOR THE KIDS

Found Tonight with Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt and all of Troupe 10036

I’m an ardent fan.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an amazing talent.

His Puerto Rican roots make it even more significant for me.

He has shown immense interest in social causes.

Benjamin Schiff Platt (born September 24, 1993) is an American actor and singer known for originating the role of the title character in the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, a performance for which he has won numerous awards.

Here you have two amazing talents joined for a common cause for the future of the children of this nation.

The heart-stopping anthem released on Monday,  March 19, by Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt to celebrate the “March For Our Lives” gun violence prevention actions this weekend needs no introduction, only some background.

The three-minute song, “Found Tonight,” mashes up Miranda’s “Story Of Tonight” from his smash musical “Hamilton” and the song “You Will Be Found,” from Platt’s star turn in “Dear Evan Hansen,” by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

This means the song draws from one story about teenage revolutionaries, and another about teens triumphing over despair.

The song begins with a rewritten line from “Hamilton” – instead of “we may not live to sing our glory,”

Platt sings, “we may not yet have reached our glory.”

All the proceeds from downloads of the song go to “March For Our Lives,” a gun violence prevention demonstration that will take place on March 24 in Washington DC.

Platt’s extraordinary gift for vulnerability and vocal sublimity are on display here, as is Miranda’s once-in-a-generation passion.

NRA Ad Warns ‘Time is Running Out’ for Its Adversaries …. “✊🏽 Surely they didn’t expect this …. Sarah Chadwick ✊🏽 …. “!!

“AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD”

SARAH CHADWICK

Parkland student Sarah Chadwick creates a fearless parody mocking the threatening NRA ad

~The NRA made its ad … now this Parkland student is returning the favor~

This past week, NRA’s spokesmodel Dana Loesch put out a threatening video ad against pretty much anyone who wasn’t supportive of the National Rifle Association – and Trumpism. In response, Parkland student Sarah Chadwick created a word-for-word parody of Loesh’s ad.

Chadwick is one of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 students and staff dead – gunned down and murdered by a student with an AR-15 automatic weapon of war.

In a thinly veiled threat packaged as an advertisement for her new show on NRA TV, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch called out various groups the NRA regularly targets warning their “time is running out.”

Featuring foreboding music, black background and costume, and an hourglass, Loesch issued what can only be described as a vague threat to take action against what the embattled gun lobbying organization views as its ever-growing list of enemies.

To the Joy-Ann Reids, the Morning Joes, the Mikas.

To those who stain honest reporting with partisanship. To those who bring bias and propaganda to CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Time … your time is running out.

The clock starts now.
