Who needs summer reading homework when you have anti-gun activism?
It’s summertime, and soon millions of teenagers across the country will be swimming at the beach, attending camps, and maybe working a summer job or two. They probably won’t be reading much (and I say this as an English teacher; as a teen, I only lightly skimmed my required summer books, yet always managed to Sparknote my way to a decent essay grade in September). Summer reading, in short, has always been a lesson in futility. Some things never change.
