Remember when you were a kid at school and the teacher would thump  your desk and yell- “Pay Attention!”

(Ok, so maybe I’m just talking about my experience at school….)

Barbie is on her way to Finland, to Kuusiston Taidekartano to be part of  ” Imagine a better future…”  with her BFF  friendship gun holster. She has 17 knitted bullets for the 17 children killed at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida,  spring 2018.

Hallo out there

Have we forgotten already what happened there?  Are we paying attention to what’s going on in our schools? Are we paying attention to what’s happening to our kids?

Do we think it’s some kind of game?

How else can we explain why there has been no legislation to control indiscriminate access to guns?

My hope for a better future is with the school children who have come together, in Florida and elsewhere, to protest and fight for their rights and ultimately their lives.

Here’s the thing- what are the grown-ups doing to help them?
