Terry Knight And The Pack - A Change On The Way
___________________________________________________________
If the ears of the people hear, the sound of feet that are marching near
If the eyes of the people see, that the sound comes from you and from me
If the shouts of the young men ring and the voices of the young girls sing
If the hearts of the children cry, to take control of the world or die

Song link Lyrics link

Dedicated to the students and teachers of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and countless other shooting victims across this nation...may your lives not have been in vain.
 
March For Our Lives link
NEVER AGAIN link

"Young people have helped lead all our great movements. How inspiring to see it again in so many smart, fearless students standing up for their right to be safe; marching and organizing to remake the world as it should be. We've been waiting for you. And we've got your backs." President Barrack Obama.

Thank you President Obama for reminding us of what a real presidency is Obama 5

Excellent b&w! I'm sadly coming to the conclusion that the trump thing is how a lot of people in this country believe.  If I think about it, I get depressed, though there are slivers of hope here and there.

Thank you so very much, Steve...much obliged :ahoy:
Yeah the racists are coming out of the woodwork now. It's a last hurrah of sorts because in a few more years they will be a minority as the "browning" of America grows daily. You would think that with how much the republicans are fucking this country that it would carry over to their bedroom but it hasn't. They barely have 2 children per family while the "minorities" are having on average 4 per family. We don't really need to do the math to see the writing on the wall.

I support what they are fighting for, but it's just the beginning.. underlying reasons of why so many people in USA feel they need a gun have to be addressed.. reducing poverty, increase employment, improve access to mental health care, work towards a more just society in every way should reduce violence and at some point guns won't be "needed" anymore.. 
Lucky for me I live in a "s******e" of a country where we don't have that kind of problems.. I mean it's far from perfect but at least I can walk alone at night without any worry whatsoever and when my kids go to school I can be sure they're safe.

:hug:

Like so many things in the US the Second Amendment for citizens to have the right to bear arms comes from an antiquated time in our history. Foremost it was a way to insure that the country had an armed militia at the ready in the emergency case that we were invaded by another country. Mind you the technology at the time was musket rifle. One shot at a time. If one soldier back then had the rifle that was used in the Parkland school shooting...I think he would have won the Revolutionary War against England single handily in a week. Another reason that people want guns is so that in case a rogue government came along we could overthrow them and restore our democracy. But that's another pipe dream. No way can we overthrow the government by armed confrontation. Look at each police department across this country. They aren't police...they are small armies with TANKS. Police with tanks. WTF! If ever there was a government that needed its leader ousted it would be this current one with Traitor Trump at the helm...but what has been done to curb this fascist who slowly behind the scenes is putting in place all the pieces to take complete control of the country first and then the world. I know that sounds insane but think of how many men throughout history have tried. That mindset hasn't gone away...ever. So what's to say it won't happen here. The most powerful country in the world just allowed a traitor to hack the voting machines and get himself elected to the most powerful position in the world with a nuclear arsenal at his fingertips second to none in the world. That's all one needs to take over....the will and the power to act on it.

I'm deeply honored by your words...thank you very much, Flori :tighthug:
It's amazing...50 years ago and not much has really changed on the political front.
Yes...dark has come over the land. But I think this new generation of young people surely have given us back hope...for now.
