WE are ALL endangered!
Can we talk for just a minute, about all the hundreds of thousands, and maybe millions of people who turned out for The March 24th #MarchForOurLives? As someone who came of age in the late 60’s and early 70’s and spent my fair share of time marching and protesting, I was so proud, so heartened (is that a word?) to see these very articulate young men and women get up in front of 100’s of thousands of people in DC and other cities around the country and around the world.
For those of you who think that these teenagers can’t possibly be this smart, this articulate, this organized (and I know that is not anyone who regularly reads these pages) I say, you are living in a dream world. Who more than this generation, raised on social media, over-scheduled and over organized within an inch of their lives, who could be better equipped to lead this movement? Emma Gonzales moved me to tears with her speech and her silence, representing the amount of time it took the gunman to kill 17 of her classmates and teachers. She is my new hero.
The Times They are a Changing…sing it, Bob!
Panda On, as if your life depended on it. (because it might!)
