    They are being used as pawns, marching to eliminate their rights, to give bad people control.
    Antifa made them do it.
    No.....the govt. made them do it.
    And that's because anyone with less than half a brain knows that the public school system is just a venue for the govt. to brainwash children.
    I have to say I totally think you're right here!  Anyone with less than half a brain would think the public school system is just a venue for government brainwash.  That being said, anyone with an entire functioning brain knows that public education was designed to educate the youth in America.  Educate them in math, literacy, science, and government -- like how to peacefully interact with our wonderfully created democracy.  I'm so thankful there are so many out there with full functioning brains...and not just those operating with...less than a half.  
    I worked in the public school system for years in two states and several school districts and sadly, what I got out of it was that the purpose of public education in most school districts in America is to create obedient, clock attending worker bees who do not question or think critically but rather simply obey.  That, combined with the lack of participation of parents in the education their kids is why I also believe the overall intelligence of American students is on the decline.
    Sadly this is a pretty fair point across many schools.  I'm a big believer in Charters (in California anyway).  Allowing families to chose a school rather than attend one according to their zip cope promotes competition.  Competition keeps schools accountable.  I know there's an argument the other way too.  I'm happy my kids go to a charter that promotes character development along with academic achievement.

    The Cherry Blossom festival has moved their kickoff/march to Sunday because of how many people are expected in the city.

    THAT'S HOW MOTHERFUCKING BIG!

    Big enough that the President is not going to be in DC but up the street in Palm Beach. I just hope he won' be here ALL week. 

    Also Robert Kraft Patriots owner loaned his Patriot plane to fly Parkland HS students and parents injured and not injured to DC for this historic March. I hope my daughter will get involved she certainly went many as we protested the wars in early 2000s.

    The Patriots plane flew Parkland families to the 'March For Our Lives' rally in DC

    Good on everyone marching. 

    Sad reality is the only thing that will improve from it is everyones health for a day. Maybe it should be a 5k instead.

    There wouldn't be so much fear, hate, and ignorance at work if there were a better distraction Trump could use. The volume of the distraction honestly appears to be the only goal.

    Four people who cared enough to get up and protest something they feel strongly about, which is more than can be said for many people, and something that I thought you pretended to value.

    I am home watching coverage but with each in spirit and intent.

    These lyrics from Puscifer's Grand Canyon keep coming to mind.

    One among infinity
    Witnessing the majesty
    Calm in this humility
    Witnessing the majesty
    Hope as far as one can see
    Witnessing the majesty
    Standing on the edge of forever
