Young reporters at an event
for young people
Regarding the March 26 article “What the March for Our Lives looked like through the eyes of young reporters” (CSMonitor.com): Bravo to the Monitor for sending this group of two college students and three recent college graduates. Their generation has huge power for change.

Thank you for sending these unjaded and loving young people to cover this historic event. They clearly conveyed the sincerity, love, and authenticity of the participants. It is a relief that they did not follow the agenda of some news organizations who painted it as a political event. It was a human event.

This was a great coverage angle for the March for Our Lives – thank you! I love to see the Monitor move forward in reporting from as diverse points of view as possible. This is the great necessity of the times, I think – to recognize there are underserved viewpoints. Giving a voice to them shows the glorious richness of our population. This needs to become a more regular feature.
These young people are demonstrating true leadership qualities. They describe the only way to move out of this quagmire we are in and make true progress. Such an inspiration! Thank you for your always excellent reporting – also from young people!
I sensed that the Monitor journalists had found minds/hearts like themselves and recognized in the young people their own aspirations being fulfilled. Long live the Monitor.
