What a week. If you haven't watched this incredible speech by eleven year old Naomi Wadler, I suggest you do so right now. I also loved this one by one of the Parkland students, David Hogg.
These are troubling times no doubt, but the amount of activism throughout the country continues to inspire me every day. The March for Our Lives yesterday was unbelievable. The weather couldn't have been worse here for our Louisville and New Albany marches, but people still showed up. I stayed home with a coughing Simon, but Andrew was there, decked out in Norwegian rain gear. So many young people and I could not be happier that the primary message behind the march was that they plan to VOTE in November.
ATTENTION HARRISON COUNTY LOCALS:

Also, if you want an easy way to support Everytown and Moms Demand Action, we have one Saturday class left this month at the studio and 100% of March's Saturday proceeds are being donated to them.
Aside from the inspiring events of today, the insanity of this president is unmatched and we are now closer to war than ever. John Bolton is in the White House. If you don't know what I mean, read this right now. And then if that doesn't scare you enough, you can read this op-ed Bolton wrote for the Wall Street Journal titled, "The Legal Case for Striking North Korea First."
HE WROTE THIS ONE MONTH AGO.
AND NOW HE IS THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR.
I hope everyone that has tried to justify Trump with claims that Hillary was just as bad, or that the stock market is soaring (not true, it is indeed negative for 2018 at this point), or that he is going to make America safer are happy...we are close to a war that has the potential to kill millions.
Don't fall asleep and please vote in 2018.
Thank you for reading if you've made it this far,
