When students speak truth to power – Emma González – Marjorie Stoneman Douglas – Parkland, Florida

Day in and day out I hear people ask “Is there no adult in Washington who will stand up and speak truth to power?”  All indications revealed there was no one to do it – that is until articulate, knowledgeable student Emma González presented the following amazing speech.  If politicians think they can get away with the same stale excuses they give for not passing common sense guns laws they are sadly mistaken.  Emma’s generation is speaking up and they are fast becoming of voting age.  I am impressed by hearing so many of these students speak up for themselves in the absence of so many lawmakers unwilling to do so.  I am proud to know that students like Emma will soon become the adults in the room who “speak truth to power.”   If you have not taken time to listen to Emma, consider doing so.  It just might leave you feeling better about our country’s future…
