Look, world. You’re being called out; it’s as simple as that. Really, it is.
The coming youth are informed and capable of tracking what’s happened. They are sick to death of being condescended to and told,”You’re too young to understand.” And they’re angry, as they have every right to be. I’m angry, too.
I’m not sure how yet, but I’m going to help them. I’ll start by talking, but this time I won’t stop. We need to recognize that something is, indeed terribly, terribly wrong when the children understand what’s needed and the adults act like frightened children and pretend that monster in the closet is just imagined..
So they can just ignore it. But the monster’s too big to do that anymore.
I will stand with the young.
