But Adams embraces the rough, equipping it as a weapon of a peaceful war. I am thankful that my own children, now 31 and 26, do not venture daily into a public school. I choose to imagine that Jazzmeia Horn sings here for her history but also for us all; that her youthful energy and creativity is the voice of the future; and that our mourning, and our moaning, and our indignation, can engender new forms of empowerment, elevation, and enlightenment in the dark times we face.
