High school students are teaching us all. They are wise, compassionate, and articulate. Here is a segment from Here & Now interview with Alex King, a senior at Chicago's North Lawndale College Prep High School, about the Parkland shooting and his efforts to call attention to Chicago gun violence.
"I actually took a trip down to Florida. I actually already have talked to some of the Parkland kids. We talked about how our pain has made us like family. Our pain is what brought us together, our trauma is what brought us together, and how this isn't a color thing, this isn't a social status thing, this isn't a division between anything, because trauma is nationwide, pain is nationwide, gun violence is nationwide."
