Tomorrow, March 24 2018, we, again, take to the streets in protest. We, again, raise our voices to demand a system that values people over profits.
We march to honor every life lost to gun violence. We march as a show of unity. We march to ensure no more lives are lost.
The youth are leading the way. As adults, we follow their lead. As adults, we guide them towards actualized change. We help them channel their energy into voting. Nothing changes if these greed mongering, heartless individuals currently in Government, the people more interested in getting reelected and profiteering than actually creating a system of care, don't get voted out. Historically, youth sit out elections, especially in midterm elections. I don't believe they will this year AND yet, they need to know how to register and how and where to vote.
We guide them to the polls.
We protest until there is true gun reform. We protest until gun violence ends. We protest until we don't have to protest any longer.
And we vote. Voting is an act of patriotism and protest.
I hope to see you out there tomorrow. Find your local March here.
Before you turn your attention elsewhere, please take a moment to read and watch these bold young women who are changing our world - Emma Gonzalez was made a leader because her friends were killed, her life forever altered. Her words and the words of her peers matter. Check them out in Teen Vogue (which is also leading the revolution)!
March like your life depends on it, as it just might.
Love and gratitude -
