In May of 1970, the youth of our country united after Kent State. There is an historical precedent for our youngsters to rise up. (Link) Activists come in all ages! Peace, prayers and hope that everyone is safe on March 24, 2018.

Thank you, Betsy, Beth, Deb, Kathleen, Lanny, Melanie, and Stacey for this daily forum each March. Check out the writers, readers and teachers here.
Heading to the Boston march today! My first ever political rally – I’m certain to be slicing about this tomorrow.
Yes let’s hope all stay safe
Christine, I will look for your post tomorrow. I had a draft already going . . . we’ll see how the day ends! 🙂
I’ll be marching in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Thought of you, Margaret, and guessed that you were about 40 degrees warmer than us. I think 35 was our high and it’s been downhill all day!
You guessed it. 75 degrees. Perfect weather.
Ah, snow covers the ground again!
Fran, I am glad you posted this. I have friends who will walk today in Doylestown. I should be there, but I am taking a walk in Longwood Gardens instead. I am so proud of the youth of this country. They are activists, charged with a tough mission. Our country and our planet need strong leadership. I hope we will see change. I am encouraged by our intelligent and caring young people who are going to make a difference in this world!
I had to look up Doylestown. I agree that our students have a tough mission but they are proving themselves to be so strong, caring, and capable! ❤
I’ll be in Brunswick, Maine. It will be small but mighty!
YAY! Hope your weather cooperates!
I am marching in Portland, OR.
Thanks, Adrienne. So cold and wet with rain/snow in Des Moines!
So many times we hear of the bad our young people. This promotes the good. They are our future, the instruments of change.
So much good! So poised. So articulate. And yes, they are the instruments of change!
Yes, young people have led so many important moments in our history. John Lewis’s March books chronicle student activism during the Civil Rights Movement well.
Glenda, I have to move those to my TBR stack!
I sat this one out but am proud and the students and educators who let their ideas and voices be heard.
So many courageous souls! ❤
