Applause for student movement

Print Article

This student walkout is the most courageous and prophetic act of civil engagement in America since the student civil rights movement of the 1960s. Like then, young people are doing what their parents, teachers and other responsible adults have failed to — they are putting their bodies on the side of peace and justice and taking a stand against the heightening degree of uncontrolled violence in schools, churches and other public settings where youth gather. Attempting to punish students for exercising their constitutional rights in defense of their own health and that of the public health and general welfare of their community is not only stupid but wrong as history has shown time and again. I deeply applaud and admire the youth who choose to participate and the adults and businesses who seize upon this historic memorial to honor those murdered across our country.

In solidarity.

Patrick Malone, Kalispell
