(Editor's Note: MediaVillage this weekend is showcasing the following column from last month in support of the nationwide #MarchforOurLives protest.) I’m no different than anyone else; after watching so much coverage last week of the mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School I felt that same crushing despair that came after Sandy Hook, Aurora, Orlando, Las Vegas, and many others. (Isn’t it terrible that we now speak of the murders of hundreds of children and adults in such geographical shorthand?) But a light suddenly shone on the morning of Sunday, February 18 as I was sampling the many news telecasts that start each new week by looking back at the week just past. I suddenly felt something that rarely comes in the wake of such real-life horror stories: Hope. And it was coming from young survivors of the Parkland attack taking charge where adults have repeatedly failed to do so.
