The March for Our Lives is sweeping not only the United States but the entire world today. Spearheaded by the brave, young, student activists who survived the horrific shooting in Parkland Florida, a powerful movement is building that finally promises real change and meaningful gun reform.
Trump, his lapdogs in the Republican Party, and the NRA should be very, very worried. A blue wave is rising up and it’s going to wash them right out of Washington and straight into unemployment.
Anyone who wants to be on the right side of history would do well to come out in vocal and strong support of the protestors. Those who cling to gun fetishization and ignore the bloodshed will be remembered as selfish cowards.
Dwayne Johnson, the world-famous actor fondly referred to as The Rock, demonstrated today that he cares about the future of this country.
Johnson tweeted out a photograph of March for Our Lives demonstrators. He stated that he stands for “open dialogue and action” because it’s the only way to avoid repeating “bad history,” a clear reference to the seemingly endless list of mass shootings that have plagued the public for years.
Johnson correctly added that the duty of protecting the lives of children falls squarely on adults and lawmakers. We must listen to what the younger generation is saying, so we can help prepare a world that they will be happy to live in.
I’ll always stand for open dialogue and action – it’s the only way to ensure bad history doesn’t repeat itself. When it comes to protecting our children, all bets are off and the responsibility lies with us adults and lawmakers to listen and do. Very strong day. #MarchForOurLives pic.twitter.com/4gJ0QKdMYw

Johnson doubled down on Instagram.
The images and videos rolling in from the March are enheartening. A strong and clear message is being sent to our government: take action, or be replaced. Trump and the Republican Party will no longer be able to take blood money from their NRA puppeteers without consequences. The world is paying attention now.
The younger generation isn’t complacent, they’re in the streets, and soon they’ll be in voting booths. Things are finally primed to change for the better in this country, and we must keep the momentum going.

"Since this movement began, people have asked me, do you think any change is going to come from this?" says Cameron Kasky, a Stoneman Douglas student. "Look around. We are the change." https://t.co/jujbxM0M4i #MarchForOurLives pic.twitter.com/qfKWO2sUZl
