The strength of our youth

It is Saturday morning and as I watch the students and families and people of all ages walking across the nation to stop gun violence it brings tears to my eyes.

As a member of the baby boomer generation my heart swells with pride and at the same time shame that it took our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to show us the way. Our public schools, with all of their problems and poor government support, also need to stand with pride with the students as they demonstrate not only their understanding of the Constitution but their courage and patriotism and belief that a person can make a change — because these students are making change happen.

We adults need to listen and join in by voting for sensible change. These young people are our future and I honestly feel our future is in good hands.
