Truth be told, I had my doubts about the youth of our country—the next generation of leaders and potential activists. I assumed that they were over-stimulated and desensitized by technology (and overly dependent on it). But, I’m proud to admit that I was wrong. After witnessing today’s events in Washington and around the country, I couldn’t be more impressed with and inspired by the youth in America. I’m proud and honored to march with them, in spirit at least. As a member of the Columbine generation, I’ve always supported stricter gun laws in this country. I wish my generation had the guts to march for our lives and fight for change when our world was turned upside down by gun violence. I’m disheartened that it took almost 20 years and dozens more school shootings to get us to where we are today—but, I’m happy that we got here.
Your move, Washington. The people have spoken. We want change, and we want it now. #NeverAgain
