So I've been on a self-rejuvenating, spiritually reconnecting, very cold vacation.
I haven't been able to post because of that, BUT I'M BACK.
And in desperate attempt to get back into the current events world, I'm gonna post about something that is current AF.
Around the U.S. today, hundreds, and maybe thousands of kids walked out of their schools in protest of policy makers on March 14th, 2018.
Just in case you’re still confused, the stark amount of shootings in schools and around schools are unsettling to many. To parents, obviously. But not only them though. Children are also making passionate moves in response to the lives lost in their own schools or on behalf of other schools that have experienced loss.
Of course, this rise is mass shootings has sparked many theories, many inciting a change in gun control laws. And at this point, the policymakers HAVE to address this problem and solve it as soon as possible. Because if the lost lives of the children weren’t enough trouble for them, the physical and social media rallies and public embarrassment will sure pose a threat.
There are also other theories (that are really just deflections) that have failed such as:
1) video games influencing mass shootings
2) befriending bullies to lower the rate of bullied kids shooting up their school (indirectly, victim blaming)
3) rumors and moves to solve the issue with horrible solutions (arming and training teachers, etc.)
But all of the above attempts have severely backfired, leading us to Wednesday's rallies across the U.S.
These kids are smart, headstrong, and unified. They know what they want and they are doing what they can to be the change they want to see in the world. If anyone has a problem with what they’re doing, and how they’re doing it, and are ridiculing them for it, or casting them down and/or aside “because they’re brats,” then you are a part of the problem.
Shout out to the kids in Huntsville for going against school officials and sticking up for what you believe in. Y’all make me proud of where I come from. And my little cousin too!
