I am privileged.
I graduated high school one year before the Columbine massacre.
I have never participated in a code red drill.
I have no idea what it’s like to be afraid of some bad guy shooting up my classroom.
I have a 10-year-old son.
Last Saturday, I had the honor to walk with my son and 18,000 other Minnesotans in a March for Our Lives at the Capitol in St. Paul, Minnesota. This march wasn’t about me. It was about our children, and the world they exist in now. I am so proud of all the youth of our country leading the way to eliminate gun violence.
I will be an ally.
I will march.
I will use my voice and privilege to amplify change.
I will vote.
This is what democracy looks like!
