My heart is bursting with pride for this rising generation. Often referred to as the Z Generation … they should be re­named the Change Generation. And, the most powerful speakers are the children.

Brave and courageous children and young adults with strong moral fiber … isn’t that what every parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent hopes for? These children are standing up for what THEY believe in. They are standing firmly in their values and high on their moral ground. They are standing up for their lives, and the ability to have the chance to learn in a safe environment. I am so proud of them.
