Good for them! God bless these kids and their courage. Even when their voice is being silenced they stood up by kneeling down. Love them! ❤️. Don’t give up. We’re with you fighting side by side. 💪
The walk up is a great idea. But this does accomplish something. They are engaging in a civics exercise. They have the right to protest. Good for them.
These children will be adults soon. They will not forget. They will run for office. They will become teachers. They will become school administrators. They will be entrepreneurs and business owners. Then they will uproot the grip you have on them and their liberties. Trust me, they will not forget how they’ve been treated. They will not forget that you said they didn’t have basic rights guaranteed under the Constitution. And they will change this country and the world! I support these children 💯💯
This action by the school will probably have the exact opposite effect that they hoped it would. Brings more attention, and it's not necessarily positive attention.
So someone please explain the difference between this shooting compared to the other shootings at schools. Also why are they not protesting at coward county police station that were as guilty as cruz is.
These educators should be ashamed of themselves! Standing up for rights should in fact be taught by schools and absolutely supported by educators unless their goal is to create some dumb witted citizens who will fall for anything.
The kids should have walked out and served the consequences if they are really serious about this protest. What if everyone would have left? Imagined all those suspension reports that would have had to been written. Rosa Parks could have move to the back of the bus, but instead she got arrested and SHE KNEW that was going to happen. The sit-in movement people knew they would be attacked, but they still sat in. MLK was arrested several time for civil disobedience. If you are serious about an issue, then the consequence is secondary.
This song was written almost 40 years ago. How relevant are the lyrics? You tell me:For What It Is WorthBuffalo SpringfieldThere's something happening hereWhat it is ain't exactly clearThere's a man with a gun over thereTelling me I got to bewareI think it's time we stop, children, what's that soundEverybody look what's going downThere's battle lines being drawnNobody's right if everybody's wrongYoung people speaking their mindsGetting so much resistance from behindIt's time we stop, hey, what's that soundEverybody look what's going downWhat a field-day for the heatA thousand people in the streetSinging songs and carrying signsMostly say, hooray for our sideIt's s time we stop, hey, what's that soundEverybody look what's going downParanoia strikes deepInto your life it will creepIt starts when you're always afraidYou step out of line, the man come and take you awayWe better stop, hey, what's that soundEverybody look what's going downStop, hey, what's that soundEverybody look what's going downStop, now, what's that soundEverybody look what's going downStop, children, what's that soundEverybody look what's going downSongwriters: Stephen Stills
Mark my words: The elders in our government will be cast out. This is the death throes of the old guard--the young voters will win in the end.
Severe punishment? Lock down? What are the school administrators so afraid of? Their students exercising their rights under the Constitution? A bad rating by the NRA? (which would be strange because the school is not running for Congress, or is somebody in the administration?)
