This was written in honour of the 17 people murdered in the Parkland school shooting on Feb 14 2018. Remember their names: Alyssa Alhadeff, Scott Beigel, Martin Anguiano, Nicholas Dworet, Aaron Feis, Jamie Guttenberg, Chris Hixon, Luke Hoyer, Cara Loughan, Gina Montalto, Joaquin Oliver, Alaina Petty, Meadow Pollack, Helena Ramsay, Alex Schachter, Carmen Schentrup, and Peter Wang. Most of those were children. It was the 18th US school shooting of 2018 -- the eighteenth in a month-and-a-half. Hey, Congress: you might be content with sitting on your hands and waiting for the next massacre, but our children are dying. We're going to fight for their right to live, even if you won't.

we will fight

we were born into war

we were dragged into this world with fire in our eyes

and ice in our hearts

we have lost too many people

sacrificed too much

hurt too long

to let you ruin us any longer.

our friends and family are dead

or too tired to fight

or grieving

but war is all we have known

we have forgotten how to grieve

all we can do now is fight for the ones who are left

we are here

we are angry

and we are coming for you
