Yes, I’ve been following some of the Parkland teens on Twitter, watching what looks to me like the birth of a real movement.

Some of the commentary has.been awful, gun supporters bashing the teens because of their age.

But you know what?

They’re only doing that because they don’t have anything else worth saying.

For every negative tweet about the Parkland kids who are working for change, there’s a score of positive ones.

I’m feeling encouraged!
