Twenty years of mass shootings. So, for as long as they've known, these kids have known that they go to school or the mall at their own peril and they have had to set their safety expectations to the whims of the NRA and the people who do their bidding. Doing a school shooting exercise is a part of their day, like biology class. What has it done to them? It has turned their fear into action. Imagine that.
Today all over the country and the world, children are marching and pleading for a less violent world. They don't give a crap about the founding fathers except for Hamilton, and that's just how to get tkts (which would be great!). They don't care what a musket was when bullets from an AR15 spray over their bodies. These amazing kids have the right to a safe education, and those of us who patronize or criticize them forget how we became a nation in the first place.
