5. VERY ARTICULATE

 

Her passion and dynamics in how she delivered, was the passion we should want in all our young people.

She is the offspring of a Great Man who did so much for America and the World, and even today, it is becoming recognized by many who never before recognized what he did. As this younger generation rediscover what he stood for and the self investment he made, and "the things he said" that are as relevant today as they were when he said them, and they will as relevant in the future, as they were in the times that he said them.

One can go all the way back to Fredrick Douglas, and hear the words that still ring true today....

The young people of today, will cross those bridge and build new bridges where there were none and tear down walls within social conscience and social communities. They will push the Civility that the Declaration of Independence Stood to Promote and the United States Constitution, has declared....


This young generation will bring clarity to ambiguity. They will make us know... that we are not the world of the past, where people need to be home armed for purposes of militia... because today, we have the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, and Coast Guard and many many forms of Law enforcement divisions. This will address the ambiguity of how the 2nd Amendment applies in this day and age. They will "clarify it" and in doing so... no war like weapons of assault styles will be in our social society. These war weapons are made for the hands of our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, and Coast Guard and many many forms of our nations security enforcement divisions.

As the young people bring pressure on the NRA, and make Americans understand, the NRA IS NOT a government organization, nor will society to allow it to buy politicians and function like its some government organization and wield power over the people.

We are going to be a society, that Moves to Federal and State Campaign Financing, which will eliminate the "money power of lobbyist"... The corporate lobbyist then will have no power greater than the people, nor will they be able to "buy and own" politicians with money and steal the voice away from the people.


We all might learn something from the young people... as much as "Rap" has many interpretations, one thing "Rap" has done is: taught Young people how to use their voice to talk about the reality in the world, in their communities and in their lives and our society. It broke down the taboo's walls, that stood as white washing and denial about the voice addressing real truths; it brought the young people to deal with truths as they see it.

Tragedies has brought them to now "use those voices" !!!!!!

As young as his Granddaughter is... She shows what the voice of the future will be.

11. This march reminded me of this:

"No Surrender"

We busted out of class had to get away from those fools
We learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school
Tonight I hear the neighborhood drummer sound
I can feel my heart begin to pound
You say you're tired and you just want to close your eyes and follow your dreams down

We made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Like soldiers in the winter's night with a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender

Now young faces grow sad and old and hearts of fire grow cold
We swore blood brothers against the wind
I'm ready to grow young again
And hear your sister's voice calling us home across the open yards
Well maybe we could cut someplace of our own
With these drums and these guitars

Cause we made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Blood brothers in the stormy night with a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender

Now on the street tonight the lights grow dim
The walls of my room are closing in
There's a war outside still raging
You say it ain't ours anymore to win
I want to sleep beneath peaceful skies in my lover's bed
With a wide open country in my eyes
And these romantic dreams in my head

Cause we made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Blood brothers in the stormy night with a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender

No retreat, baby, no surrender

20. Awww.. that is so Magnifient!

Yolanda Renee King, 9 years old..

“Will you please repeat these words after me?” Yolanda asked the crowd. “Spread the word, have you heard? All across the nation we are going to be a great generation.”

Mahalo Botany!

21. If that doesnt bring a glimmer of hope, a bit of tears and the best reason to keep on punching...

Then it’s over, finished. THIS is why we fight.
