Time and time again, we’ve seen how much more impact you can have when you show, rather than tell people, your story. This lesson hit us especially hard this weekend as we watched Emma González, one of the leaders of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student activists, give her speech at the March for Our Lives here in D.C.
If you haven’t heard Emma’s moving speech, take a few minutes to watch it:
Six minutes and twenty seconds. That’s all the time it takes to end seventeen lives with a high powered firearm. Those minutes of silence were a powerful illustration of why Emma, her classmates, and hundreds of thousands of other rallied this weekend. Because no child should have to fear for their lives when they walk into their classroom.
