Between 1000 and 1,500 students, teachers, community members, and organizers came out yesterday for the UPSET event which at last morning count had over 1,300 people joined on Facebook. As I entered the Rose Garden arena I seen a sea of children and adolescents along with parents and teachers swarming with signs and banners protesting the ridiculous budget cuts they are faced with. Never have I felt such moving emotion. As youth held their signs high for my camera, I felt something. Why is it now that students have to take to the streets with their teachers to get the message across in this country? These kids are trying to save their teachers' jobs and their future. It's time our elected leaders take action!
