For all the pundit palaver on television opining about “what’s next?” please be advised the kids are already ahead of the game. We can reasonably assume that while the stage was being dismantled there were youngsters working on their ParentsPromiseToKids web site. The site is simple and direct.
“Students Adam Buchwald and Zach Hibshman, both juniors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, have taken the initiative to create the organization “Parents Promise To Kids” to ensure that children’s voices are HEARD! In our movement, we urge parents to make a promise to their children that they will vote for politicians who choose your children’s safety over guns! Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to vote for our leaders; however, their parents are. We want parents to sign a contract to promise their children that they will vote for politicians who will keep our schools safe. Parents, make a promise to your kids!”
The instructions are simple and direct:
In order to be apart of our movement, we would like parents to sign a contract, print it, and take a picture with their children to show their support against guns. Please refer to our contract page.
There are contract forms for parents, for grandparents, and a general contract for “interested others.” Download. Print. Share. As of today 8,521 individuals have downloaded the contracts. It’s the next step to assist those youngsters who are as yet too young to vote in our elections, but unfortunately not too young to be the targets of gun violence.
Your support would be appreciated. (In the time it took to type this post the number of downloads moved from 8,513 to 8,527. Join the movement.)
