Let's talk about Reason #3 to see ANOTHER REVOLUTION: the real world issues. As part of its mission, TBT collects contributions for a cause chosen by the playwright that reflects the themes or subject matter of her play. This cycle, playwright Jacqueline Bircher has chosen to support the Stoneman Douglas students and their March for Our Lives, a contemporary testament to student activism.
In 1968, student protesters were on the front lines of the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam War movements, fighting against a culture that perpetuated racism and forced their peers into a senseless war. Now, exactly 50 years later, the courageous students of Parkland, FL are following in their footsteps, turning thoughts into action, and a tragedy into a movement.
I hope you'll join me in supporting these fearless young men and women by donating to the March For Our Lives. They are the direct descendants of the students of the 1960s who fought for peace, equality, justice, the environment, and the future of this tiny blue dot we call home.
As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr told us: "the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." Stand with these kids. They're bending the universe.
