If anyone remembers the Def Leppard song ‘Lets Get Rocked’ one of the first lines describe what this is about. Now I am a lot older than a teenager, but it will describe how this country can work if we come together.
“I’m your average ordinary everyday kid,
Happy to do nothin’
In fact that’s what I did
I got a million ways to make my day”
The kids of today have been more active in the news as of late than the average adult it seems. Ever since the last tragedy in Florida the young adults seem to be taking things up a notch and for that I say that we can learn a lesson from them. They took one of the hardest things to go through in their lives and have turned it into an energy and passion that is going to be the reason to change the way people think.
There are things that kids have an energy about and this is one of them it appears to be. As a military veteran I was trained on how to put my energy to good use. I see the kids having had that lesson rammed down their throat and showing that they can use the energy it created in a good way instead of one where fear rules their lives.
We need to harness the young adult’s energy and change the world that they live in. We can take the blood and dirty money out of the government and say that this is the way we want our world to be. We need to get the special interest money and groups out of the government. Groups that pay the people that represent us need to do just that.
When there is what I call ‘Dark Money’ in the government we end up with people in the government that haven’t stood where the common person is. They haven’t had to worry about where they get their next meal or if they pay for the medication that they need. They haven’t gone to bed hungry, so their kids could eat.
Let’s use our voices, let the truth be heard and if they don’t want to hear us turn up the volume. If every person who read this wrote a letter to their congress person and said enough of the ‘Dark Money, enough of doing what special interest wants’ then they would hear the call.
