These kids endured horrors, yet they rose above them and are fighting for us.

In a time when it feels like school shootings have just become de rigueur, Dave Cullen gives us a sense of optimism and hope by capturing the energy and passion of the survivors who have come to understand the power of voting. As a Columbine survivor, I appreciate the message of these young people and Cullen as one of their most effective messengers.

An excellent following of both the survivors and change makers after MSD. Captures their strength and rage in the face of a malicious minority of gun-toting policy makers who profit from the fear and power they wield precariously, panicking at the hint of reforms that take that perceived power away. One year later, the players have changed chairs; the NRA-supported candidates all have new jobs. MSD rages on. As kids today say, and have been saying for a year, MAKE IT STOP.
