Yesterday, thousands of students across this great nation participated in school walkouts to honor the seventeen students and teachers killed in the Parkland school shooting and to protest gun violence. Included in the walkout were the public schools of Oshkosh, WI where I live and which my children have attended and still attend. At Oshkosh North High School, where my daughter graduated and where my son is currently a senior, hundreds of students lined the sidewalk in peaceful protest and solidarity. Our children have spoken. They have lived in a culture defined by war and violence and they are asking for us to make a change….and if not us, then they will do something about it by voting in the upcoming elections. I tip my hat to this great generation of visionaries who have grown weary of a nasty and violent world and who have made themselves known as a voice for non-violent social change. Thank you!
