When I first approached Rosa, she didn’t think she had a story to share. She ended up making me teary with her many thoughtful and deeply kind observations about the clinic. Hers was also my longest interview. In these times when it seems so easy to forget, Rosa is, for me, the “real America.”
…and it doesn’t involve arming teachers.
#Enough #MarchForOurLives #NationalSchoolWalkout #ThrowThemOut
Students in Parkland, Florida – students EVERYWHERE – know what is wrong with our country. I support the National High School Walkout on April 20th, the anniversary of the Columbine massacre (AND the Women’s March action on March 14th AND the March for Our Lives on March 24th). This youth-organized event demands that the adults in elected office (elections in which most teenagers cannot vote) do their job, take care of their communities, and enact real gun reform legislation. Now.
