The Kids are Alright
Once again this week, the nation was brought to its knees, offering thoughts and prayers for the Parkland, Florida community. We have a pretty typical news cycle in cases like these - condensed as it has been because of political news and the Olympics. Except, this time - the kids. Social media accounts of students cowering in classrooms and closets played out this tragedy in real time and the kids.are.not.having.it. They are mobilizing, and it is awesome in its simplicity: check their Facebook page
It makes me think the kids are alright.
Maybe the silver lining - if there could be one - of such tragedy is that the generation coming up behind us is empowering itself.
(Now if only we could get them to do their own laundry)
