🚫Enough is Enough🚫
When the code red was announced last year toward the end of the school day, I was very convinced that it was real. It was weird time of day for a drill, and my class was in the gym. As we were directed toward the gym closet, I hid on a shelf in between two bins, and made myself as small as possible. I was going to do everything I could not be the victim of another school shooting! Later, there was an announcement saying all clear. I left school that day a bit shaken up. When is enough going to be enough?
After the last school shooting in Parkland, Florida, youth around the country are standing up and protesting the lax gun control laws in our country. My own school, Indian Hills Middle School, recently held a peaceful walk-out to bring awareness to this issue. Chris Bihuniak of Rock Band Academy Studios feels very passionate about gun control as well. He recently wrote lyrics and music for a song called, “Enough is Enough.” He produced three different versions of this song with three different young vocalists. I had the opportunity to be one of the singers chosen. We each got to create our own melody. Take a listen to Chris’s moving song. March For Our Lives is a movement because enough IS enough. It’s time for us to stop hiding in school closets and stand up for gun control.👊🏻
