The Inalienable Right of Children to Protest

All children - society's vanguard of all beneficial change - retain the inalienable right to protest. On entering the doors of institutions of education, children do not forego any of their rights.

That said, in lieu of any decisive action by dying-adult political leaders to protect present and future lives and environment of children, then all youth must retain the right to protest of all matters, including the prevalent easy access and availability of guns in America.

Earlier this morning, I endorsed and supported a permission slip from my son's middle school, here in Washington, DC, hereby giving permission to the school to allow my son to exercise his right, to join his classmates and tens of thousands of other students across America, to walk out of class on Wednesday, March 14, Pi Day,  for 17 minutes, in protest of the continuing danger guns pose to young people and the future of the Republic. 

That children are now forced to pick up the responsibility of adults, clearly speaks of the gravity of societal failings unfolding; and is also indicative of the gross failing by elderly political leaders to protect future generations. 

And whereas adults have failed to prioritize  gun control and protection of the environment, children, therefore, who will inherit the mess created by dying men, fully remain within their rights to protest now, tomorrow, the next day and beyond in order to demand greater protections of their futures.
