Ep. 119 “The Parkland Generation”


March For Our Lives is a national movement inspired by the surviving students of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that occurred one month ago in Parkland, Florida.

Today’s episode discusses the impact that these surviving students of Parkland are having on our nation and their own generation. Our panel of Shrinks talk about their hopes for change, their skepticism of gun reform and the power of social media movements.

“We always name a generationwe have the Baby Boomers, Gen X, the Millennials. I think a name that could stick for this group would be the Parkland Generation. Not just because of the event, but because of what it represents. This is a tenacious group of kids who are social media savvy, connected and they don’t give up.”

–Dr. Dave Verhaagen
