Parkland Shooting Survivors Have 'Had Enough' On Time's Powerful New Cover

Parkland Shooting Survivors Have 'Had Enough' On Time's Powerful New Cover
Updated 2 months ago

Just over a month ago, the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, shook the nation once again. Hundreds of schools participated in a nationwide walkout to protest gun violence and guns in schools. And this new generation has put their intentions on blast by showing up on the cover of Time Magazine and making it known that they have had enough.

These kids are not afraid to speak out. They have had enough and are telling our leaders and the world that things need to change. The featured article in Time is giving students from the Parkland, Florida, shooting a chance to say exactly what they are thinking. 

One of the founders of the #neveragain movement, 11th grader Cameron Kasky, told Time:

The adults know that we’re cleaning up their mess. It’s like they’re saying, ‘I’m sorry I made this mess,' while continuing to spill soda on the floor.

They are not afraid of politicians or the work it's going to take to change minds as well as gun policies. 

Student David Hogg says:

We’re going to show these politicians that we’re coming for them.

 Cameron Kasky made another bold statement in the article:

 The world failed us and we’re here to make a new one that’s going to be easier on the next generation. If you’re against that, then get out.

Kris Brown, co-president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, tells Time:

This youth movement is unprecedented. What’s different here is that the children who are impacted are older, and they are able to give voice in a way that could not happen before.

Even with all the power, faith, and hope the kids have harnessed, many people oppose their mission. 

Some people simply don't believe they can affect significant change:

Despite the opposition, the gun violence resistance has a new voice and they are just as likely as anyone to make changes:

The new generation has spoken and is conjuring change. Support them and cheer them on for peace!
