Sketch by Sarah Sullivan of the March for Our Lives

Student Voices

How is it that students can express simple truths while we older folk get it all muddled up?

I was at the San Diego March for Our Lives this morning, listening and learning. Here are some of the simple truths that I read and heard:

  • Schools are for learning, not for lockdowns.
  • Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
  • Black lives matter.
  • Fear has no place at school.
  • 18th-century laws don’t work for 21st- century assault weapons.
  • Am I next?
  • Vote them out.
  • I am a girl, I have less rights than a gun.
  • Mental illness is universal, mass shootings are American.
  • Never again.
  • I’m not bulletproof.
  • Thoughts, prayers, action.
  • Disarm hate.
  • Will I live to vote?
  • Protect kids, not guns.
  • I deserve better.
  • We demand effective gun control.
  • Help students, not the NRA.
  • March, discuss, vote.
  • Student lives matter.
