You’ve shown young people, you’ve shown everyone that it’s not just enough to like posts and retweet.
“We all, we all, we all have to get involved. And we all have to register to vote. Too many excuses have been made. Too many lives have been lost. So thank you for taking on this challenge.

On behalf of families everywhere — never, never, never never again.”
