The Prez Says:
During the recent rallies that the students from Parkland, Florida organized that spread nationwide. I was struck by a sign that read, “and a small child shall lead them.” Isiah 11:6. It made me think, here is a group of students who took the initiative to do what was necessary to make sure what happened in their school never happened again.
It made me feel good to see these young people taking the situation in hand and not wait around for someone to do it for them or tell them what they should do. The students who spoke up after the tragic events in Parkland expressed themselves well and with a passion we don’t always credit those of their age to have. We have to stand up and support them in their efforts to accomplish what those with more experience and supposed authority haven’t done. Those in a position to do something after Columbine did nothing but provide lip service. After Sandy Hook, again those people were going to take care of the problem and they didn’t. Then after the slaughter in Las Vegas we were told we should not demand bump stocks be banned right away but wait and not react irrationally.
The students of Parkland said no waiting, no excuses, Congress do something about this NOW. I am asking you to stand with those students, contact your federal legislators and demand they do something to make schools a safe place for children to learn.
