The year 2018 has seen a lot of changes in America. A lot of hidden hatred has come to the surface, and no longer can politicians hide behind the party line while innocents pay for it with their lives. The ‘March For Our Lives,’ taking place Saturday all around the world, is a prime example of that. The youth of our planet is tired of waiting for grown-ups to do the right thing and pass legislation that would keep them from being slaughtered in their classrooms. Instead, they’ve taken to the streets in honor of the lives lost to sensible gun violence, and to demand many things be done to ensure that far less school shootings happen in America.
The nearly 900 marches on six continents have been filled with future leaders speaking words of wisdom far beyond their years. One such speaker was little Yolanda Renee King, the granddaughter of historic civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.. The tiny future president spoke to a very large crowd without a second of hesitancy. Grandpa would have been proud.
Little Yolanda King’s words spoke of her iconic grandfather’s historic speech. She said:
“My grandfather had a dream that his four little children would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream that enough is enough, and that this should be a gun-free world, period.”
The crowd erupted in a resounding roar as the words touched the hearts of billions simultaneously. She then led them in the following chant:
“Spread the word. Have you heard? All across the nation. We are going to be a great generation.”
