My life, my safety at school should always come before guns, and as a country we are failing in our ability to protect our most vulnerable, so I am marching for change.
I march so I can see a positive change in our future, a future where students aren’t afraid to go to school, wondering if they should duck and cover whenever they hear a noise coming from the hallway.
I march because, even though we will face consequences for the walkout on [Wed., March] 14th, we saw little to no response from the local and national leaders.
I could relate hard to the Simon character, even though I’m straighter than a stick. All I wanted for him in the end was happiness.
Today, I learned our school has little respect for us and our administrators made a choice to alienate themselves from the students they are supposed to serve and protect.
There are three marches and/or walkouts being organized on March 14, March 24, and April 20. They all have the same general aim of insisting immediate government action to pass a bill addressing the current gun issues in the nation, but have slightly different reasons for their existence and ways to participate in them.
There is no day but today. We need to stop cursing past gun restrictions that could have prevented this tragedy. We need to act today. We need to speak out against the sale of automatic rifles today. We need to make our schools safe again today.
As school shootings continue to happen in America, many people are debating if teachers should be armed and trained to protect students during an emergency. A group of teens at VOX ATL spoke out about this issue and how it can affect them.
“Black Panther” intricately weaves together aspects of culture, politics, and principle through an Afrocentric lens. It questions the morality of politics and the political influences of what society considers to be right and wrong.
To my black group of friends, I’m the whitest person they know, and to my white group of friends, I’m the blackest person they know. Caught in the middle of a cold war between races, I wasn’t too sure who I was siding with. And that makes me very angry.
