The more I hear or do not hear about the politicians inability to take any real action on gun control in America, the more I feel that the youth are more mature, passionate and thoughtful than most of the politicians in office. The youth’s energy run on the real truth and are not afraid of calling BS when confronted with the same rhetoric of these politicians. There are even politicians that feel that the youth are incapable of rallying and protesting which have since sparked wide spread protests from the youth.
The youth ARE social media, and they have the power to spark a movement.
Where is the confidence in our future? I mean the children are our future and not a phrase used because it sounds good.
On the other hand, we have the commander in chief promoting gun carrying teachers. I wish I was making this stuff up. Furthermore, it is absolutely absurd to have a teacher carry a gun in the classroom. To train as security personnel, you have to have a certain mindset to want to engage with a threat in the school and possibly pull the trigger. A teacher is not that person and should not ever have to potentially decide if they have to consider that any student is a threat to the school and possibly shoot a student in front of other students. Placing guns in the classroom is the most irresponsible and stupid thing to do to prevent….guns in the classroom/school. It is as stupid as it sounds.
Once more politicians try to keep their pockets full of NRA dollars by not sitting down and figuring out what needs to be down regarding gun control and keeping society safer as a whole. The first thing that comes out of gun rights activism is “they’re trying to take our guns”. What?! Did anybody say that? Maybe the ones that are stocking up for World War III are the ones who need to have their guns taken away because they might be mentally unstable. Those are the ones that should be watched or have questionable tendencies in owning a gun/assault rifle/weapon of mass destruction.
We cannot resolve the issue until we address the fear that keeps hiding under these fits of rage and anger. It’s about the fear of losing control. It could be the fear of losing the right to bear arms; the control of country or even the control of self-worth. It’s a lack of understanding that no ONE on this earth have absolute control. We don’t even control our breathing. That alone should tell you that you are not in control no matter how long you try to hold your breath.
History shows that mankind has been tainted by sin from many years ago and there will always be bad versus good; wrong versus right, up versus down and so on and so forth. It’s does not help to keep fueling the fire of the past and not learning from the past mistakes of history and offering no solutions to the present and future. We, the ADULTS, should sit down and learn a thing or two from the mouths of babes. The adults need to do our job and keep everyone safe. If nothing is done, than we are doomed to repeat the past, and the universe will eventually balance itself out if we do not get our acts together.
Youth Leaders are uniting the people and my thoughts and prayers are with us all.
