Congratulations #marchforourlives

Your messages made a difference yesterday in Florida. You crushed it in Broward.

“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”

–JRR Tolkien

********************************

For David, Emma, Jaclyn, Cameron, Delaney, and all the other young activists in Florida:

********************************

City tableau: I was walking down Liberty Ave in Pittsburgh on my way to work. In the morning, you will occasionally find drunks passed out in the vestibules of some of the shops. The must stagger out of the bars in the wee hours and can’t make it more than a few feet before they collapse in the closest shelters they can find.

Yesterday, I saw a little assembly around one of these little shelters. There were two sleepers on the ground surrounded by three teenagers in plastic lawn chairs. They were guarding the sleepers. Just sitting there, making sure that no one got close. They looked up at me silently and fiercely as I walked by. The sleepers were undisturbed in their oblivion.

There is still good in the world.
