So many school shootings. So many protests. But it really is different this time.Â
This moment reminds me of when the Greensboro Four sat down at a lunch counter in 1960 and captured the nationâ€™s attention, largely because it was covered on national TV and the timing was right. It wasnâ€™t nearly the first sit-in of it’s kind, but it had a bigger impact than most before it.
These young people have a national platform and theyâ€™re using it SO WELL. Theyâ€™re increasingly intersectional, and they’re building a movement. I think this will evolve beyond guns and really help to energize the actual majority of the country that is sick of Republican greed and corruption.
I hope we can all continue to support their leadership.
