Please… Gun nuts, NRA, and your bought-and-paid-for politicians… Spare us your pearl clutching and hand wringing about the supposed Hollywood celebrities and evil liberals who you would like to think have influenced and driven yesterday’s marchers. These are bright, articulate, and genuinely frightened kids who need absolutely no prompting nor enticements toward speaking truth to power. Perhaps what frightens you even more than their numbers and potential voting strength is their bright and imminently aware common sense. Education is power, and your frantic efforts to starve our schools and stifle intelligence is proof positive that an informed and energized voting public is your very worst enemy. Well, you have now met your enemy face to face, it’s a formidable one, and you’d better begin making alternative plans. Your reign of terror is over. ~ Jon
