I feel we haven’t had in some time, an activist like the ones you would learn about in history class. I feel it is much harder today to stand out for longer than 5 minutes in our society of fast internet, social media, and shortened attention spans. I might be wrong, some of you might be able to name several civil and human rights activists right now who are making strides. I just don’t see them. In today’s world, I see a bunch of opinions, ideas, and thoughts on how to make today better, but I haven’t seen the actions to make a difference. Make my country as well as the world better, safer, kinder.
I feel we haven’t had in some time, an activist like the ones you see in the youth of today. There have been several mass shootings and tragedies followed by several debates of gun control and mental health and beaten down voices on policy change and regulations. I see a spark in the youth following what happened in Parkland on Tuesday morning of February 14th.
May they the strength to fight back three times as hard to those who try to knock them down.
