When I first heard about the school walkouts, I was amplified. I was proud of my generation for finally banding together to support something that involved us directly at the core. Yet, I was worried. I was worried that, due to our school being so small and somewhat secluded from the outside world, no one would even be interested in taking part of something so political. Eventually I put my thoughts to the side, and forgot about the issue all together.
Then, last week over the intercom I hear these words ring throughout the school: Come and help make posters for the school walkout during seminar today. That is when I began to get excited. I ended up making a poster that read REVOLUTION NO. 10.
