The magic kids taught me something during the March for Lives. Not about gun violence, though I agree with them in that. No, it was about teens and their promise to America and Democracy.
As a former high school teacher, I have worried about the world we were leaving them. I am worried no longer. Sure problems are rife, sure there are almost insurmountable problems too, and for sure the world teeters on war, again.
But what I realized is that these kids are super capable. It is to my discredit that I forgot what kids are capable of. My heart soared like an eagle when I saw the numbers, the intelligence, and the motivation for change through the democratic process.
Be aware that this is the start of something big, not just gun control, you would underestimate their power if you marginalized them in that way.
They will march, protest, vote, support candidates, oppose others, and make America Great again but this time following democratic principles. Teachers, congratulations, they were listening and now they are ready as the times demand that someone takes a stand.
They are the children of America and they know what to do and are unafraid to do it.
Get out of the way, salvation is at hand. God bless them, each and every one. I ain’t worried no more.
