The Times are Changin’ Again

It is appropriate and correct that young people are once again in the forefront of a major shift in the politics of America. In 1968, we changed the world with our anti war protests. Today students are once again protesting against violence, gun violence. I also find it serendipitous that the students leading this protest are from a school named after a woman, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, who in her day lead protests and eventually helped save the Everglades, with her 1947 masterpiece, The Everglades: River of Grass. Just as the class of 1968 made a difference, I hope the class of 2018 makes a difference in America. I will be supporting them in Washington DC on Saturday, March 24.
