What does it mean? “March for Our Lives”?
The problem that I am having with this current protest march is who the heck knows what it is about? Please do not take me lightly here; on the contrary, I view these organized protests deluxe with fresh water bottles being handed out by members of the press as well as the light meal for those in need of replenishment as being civil.
Nonetheless, as much of a learning opportunity this “March for Our Lives” is we need to be asking ourselves what is it that is being learned and by whom? We do have the right to assemble guaranteed to us by the First Amendment. We also in the same document have the right to bring grievances to our government. Therefore, anyone who argues against freedom to protest (assemble), and our rights to bring grievances against our government (grievances) is what really at issue here is arguing for what?
Furthermore, having come from an academic background, it is important to “objectify” any lesson. It is afterward that we “assess” or grade how well or not well we did give our mission. This is precisely the same thing as saying when one makes a Lesson Plan the first we do is to put forth our objective for the lesson. Then, everything we do should be a step in the right direction of achieving a grand assessment.
Nevertheless, this was not the objective or the outcome of the March for Our Lives. I have put together some pictures and artwork for your perusal. As I was doing this it came to me that this is yet another Democrat Party platform with new teams leading protests (SEIU) and (ACORN) or what lives matter or any other thing that bothers them during the time, very much like Planned Parenthood.
The images that amazed me the most were of little children carrying signs that intimated matters far beyond their cognitive skills. Moreover, all the protesting to me had extra baggage being carried for “…what else can we get…” Just look at the title, March for OUR LIVES. As for me, using children to convey a message is disgusting! Carrying a sign that they can’t read or understand the meaning of it is worthless!
If you are reading happen to be of adult age or among the 70 or so percent who could not pass a dumbed down simply citizenship test – then let this one go.
Altogether, there are signs for “Keep me Safe,” Racial, “Penis size” “Holding Hands not Guns.” So although there was some coverage on the NRA and Voting, is your message clear?
