Students march in defiance of history.
Too many school shootings since Columbine.
Too many innocent people murdered
Students march in the wake of political apathy.
Tired of the knee-jerk “Thoughts and prayers”
But never any action to stop the violence.
Students march so their voices
Can be heard.
Adults try to stop them
To silence them.
But they won’t be.
We bear witness to
That is only just
Adults have had endless chances
To make things right.
Now it’s the younger generation’s turn.
To make the change
That connects them all.
“Make Us Safe.”
