A famous anecdote on the role of adults
As the Parkland school shooting on Valentine’s Day 2018 left 17 students dead, and Emma Gonzalez roared her pain and rage into tv cameras, the world’s living rooms and millions of hearts, and a couple days later her group of friends announced the March For Our Lives on Washington to spark a national movement and ban the sale of military assult weapons … adults came up asking “How can we help?”, and Alex Wind responded “Bring Pizza.”
The teens knew perfectly well how to organize themselves, communicate, ask for help, and get things done, from Cameron’s living room floor, in a matter of weeks. This says it all. The role of adults is Support On Demand.
When they invited a donor that pledged $500,000 to share a few words on stage, he declined – no, you speak, only youth speak. That’s the way.
That is good news for you: you, as an adult are not expected to run full-time projects. That’s what fired up youth do. Your help is to be brief, efficient, and no less extremely important!
Let’s go to work.
I come here with a specific interest. I would like to ...
