Some believe we should all pray to solve this, and others realize that these kids will be voting age soon. The future looks bright –

Hopefully the voices of all of the nation’s students will be heard and meaningful action can be taken to insure that all of our children, teachers and school staff are safe when they go about the business of educating the youth of our country.

from Ezra’s school newsletter this month –
Students Stand United Against Gun Violence
In an action of solidarity with students across the nation, Renaissance high school students staged a peaceful walk-out to protest the lax gun control laws which many feel have played a part in the number of violent gun incidents, especially in schools. The walk-out on Wednesday marked the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting in Parkland, FL, and our students were joined by teachers, as well as staff from the offices of Councilmember Dromm and Senator Peralta. Students took part in a number of other actions prior to the march, including participating in a Town Hall with Mayor De Blasio and attending a press conference that Congressman Joseph Crowley held at Renaissance the day before the march (he followed this up with a post on Facebook!).

Students Loren Francione and Nico Cortez spoke eloquently about the desire of students to feel safe and their hopes that there will be better gun laws soon. Read their statements HERE.
