Rise Up

Watching video after video this morning of young people speaking out against gun violence in America and in favor of gun control—no more stalling, no more excuses, no more thoughts and prayers. It is all rather reminiscent of my own youthful days when it took an uprising of the younger generation to put an end to the senseless slaughter of the Vietnam War. I am encouraged by these folks, who have returned passion and honesty and a sense of immediacy to the political stage. The tide may well have turned once again; and that’s good, because my country has too long been drowning in an indolent tidepool of denial and collective malaise.
