I think so much! The children are marching today. Are we listening? Something has got to change for these children. Do something even if only temporary in hopes of finding something that will work to save the lives of the children. As adults no matter what side of the fence we're on we are failing the children and we need to listen to their voices as they come together today. May all the children be wrapped in a hedge of protection.

Please, please no political debates. Let us just think about the children of today and the safety of the children.

The young children of today are the voters of tomorrow! And that's just the truth. Maybe they will get out and vote!

All we need. Is more human decency.

I am so impressed with the youth of today. I cannot turn off this amazing coverage of this event! I feel so comfortable leaving my life in the hands of these youth.

We can learn so much from observing what our young people find important and in supporting them in their struggle to find meaning in their lives.

I thought I was older and wiser than one of my students, but then the student made me think a new thought and I was new because of it, and then it was clear to me, it was the interaction, and through the interaction the thought became new. It would not have been possible without the student. The student taught me.

I can't reply much on this topic without being political- so I'll just say, my granddaughter and her husband both took a day off work, hired a babysitter, and took part in our local march. Agree or disagree, I'm very proud of them.

That life is not static. That change is coming. A new generation is taking over. With vim and vigor.  Makes an old guy like me feel young again. --Jim
