We've been listening to the right, the NRA, to Fox News angrily scream for decades.
And we let it go.
Or took the high road.
What's great about people like @Emma4Change, @davidhogg111 and the #Parkland students... is they are voicing THEIR anger.

They won't be shouted down by Wayne or Tucker or Rick or internet trolls and they're not going to pretend they're not pissed off.
That was OUR mistake.
WE assumed dead kids would make people step back and be civil.
The generation born after Columbine has had #Enough. /2
Somebody needs to be screaming back, and I'm glad it's students who want a safer future.
Let them lead.
Let them lead LOUDLY.
Let them lead by example.
That's what's freaking the gun lobby out right now.
The usual tactics aren't working.
#MarchForOurLives /3
Watch: When screaming doesn't work, when slander doesn't work, when conspiracy theories don't work, a call for a "civil conversation" will be the attempt.
Sorry.
Tried that.
Now, you've get to hear #ParklandStudentsSpeak.
Loudly.

So, the #MarchForOurLives gives me hope.
People are getting off their computer and taking to the streets and being heard.
MILLIONS who want sensible gun reform but realize it's going to take a lot of noise, passion and yeah ANGER to make that happen.

NOT VIOLENCE.
But anger? You bet.
Focused, righteous anger for every unnecessary victim of gun violence..
I want to believe the game changed this week.
It should have earlier.
That's on my generation.
But if the game changed, it started in #Parkland.
Now, the follow through.
