I want to say
To those lazy students,
(walking out from school and raining on Washington)
To this uncaring egotist youth,
(speaking against the dangers all face)
To the snowflake generation of pampered cowards,
(mobilizing united against the murderous gun makers,
the cowardly law makers for sale, puppets of the NRA,
and crime spree of hate fed by our government)
I want to say…
We failed to make this world safe for you.
We got distracted with reality shows, with stupid banter, and cynicism.
We kept shouting “Fake News”, and “Build that wall”, and “It’s the homeless fault.”
We shouted so hard we couldn’t hear the bullets.
We were so blind we couldn’t see the color of your blood.
It’s up to you now.
Discern the voice of your spirit.
Learn to think for yourself, don’t wait for us to teach you.
Speak up… and listen to yourself.
Observe… and remember.
Survive… and vote.
Stay woke… and live.
