FINDING THEIR VOICE: Changing the World

  • The youth in the United States are in the midst of organizing a powerful campaign against the current gun laws.

  • They have become more effective than adults who have been debating this issue for decades.

  • This is an example of youth showing leadership as they find their voice and change the world.

There was another school shooting on February 14th, 2018.

It occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Seventeen died and fourteen injured went to hospitals.

This is one of the world’s worst school shootings.


This shooting triggered reactions from the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. They have criticized politicians. They are asking them to take action to prevent more children from dying in shootings.

These school-shooting survivors are old enough and angry enough to do something. They are also media-savvy enough to force adults to help sort out mass shooting incidents.

With their expertise in social media, their messages have often gone viral.

They have organized a group called “Never Again MSD.” MSD stands for Marjory Stoneman Douglas. They are demanding legislative action to prevent similar shootings. They have held rallies and are organizing school walkouts. Students are demonstrating across the United States. They are organizing a march in Washington, D.C.


There has been some kickback from various factions suggesting they are only children. They are not old enough to vote. There were claims that it paid actors, not students, who were protesting. But it is students across the United States who are organizing this movement.

These students are finding their voices. They are having impacts on many politicians from the President of the United States down.

Youth are having more impact on this matter than all the adults. Adults have been debating what to do or not to do for decades.

This campaign is as much about youth finding their voice as it is about gun policy.

This is an example of youth demonstrating leadership. It shows their ability to make the world a better place.

I applaud them.
