Those who walked out are the winds of change

We support the students who participated in the National Walkout two weeks ago.

We want to applaud Natalie Gomez and the students of White River High School for their courageous stand on March 14.

Ms. Gomez makes several very important points in her editorial. We feel the youth today, no matter what their concerns, should never be discounted. Rather, they should be supported and respected. They are the winds of change and will have great impact upon our future.

Now, more than ever, we need to apply all of our common sense toward a solution to gun violence. We support the students who are calling for common sense gun laws. We also support any youth action on any issues they feel are important enough for them to address. They are building toward the future and should be empowered, not suppressed.
