"If we don't do better, if we don't take this anger we have right now, this despair, this sorrow and turn it into action, then we deserve to be a footnote in that history.

We failed to save ourselves or our kids."
I know what FUBAR stands for. But this ones a new one.
We should use phrases like this - as OUR weapons.

They hold guns as more important than childrens lives. NINETEEN childrens lives. And thats just the latest death toll from the latest school shooting.
And MAN-oh-MAN have we lost our way.

This speech was so deftly delivered that nobody even felt it when they were cut right through to the bone.
