#NeverAgain
A New Generation Draws the Line
Borrow Borrow
From two survivors of the Parkland, Florida, shooting comes a declaration for our times, and an in-depth look at the making of the #NeverAgain movement.

On February 14, 2018, seventeen-year-old David Hogg and his fourteen-year-old sister, Lauren, went to school at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, like any normal Wednesday. That day, of course, the world changed. By the next morning, with seventeen classmates and faculty dead, they had joined the leadership of a movement to save their own lives, and the lives of all other young people in America. It's a leadership position they did not seek, and did not want—but events gave them no choice.
The morning after the massacre, David Hogg told CNN: "We're children. You guys are the adults. You need to take some action and play a role. Work together. Get over your politics and get something done."
This book is a manifesto for the movement begun that day, one that has already changed America—with voices of a new generation that are speaking truth to power, and are determined to succeed where their elders have failed. With moral force and clarity, a new generation has made it clear that problems previously deemed unsolvable due to powerful lobbies and political cowardice will be theirs to solve. Born just after Columbine and raised amid seemingly endless war and routine active shooter drills, this generation now says, Enough. This book is their statement of purpose, and the story of their lives. It is the essential guide to the #NeverAgain movement.

  • From the cover
    1. VALENTINE'S DAY


    WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR EYES BUT THE nightmare doesn't go away, you've got no choice but to do something. Our first job now is to remember. Our second job is to act. Remember, act, repeat. Since that day, none of us are the same. But we are alive. And in memory of those who are not, we will remember and act for the rest of our lives. We've always been taught that as Americans, there is no problem that is out of our reach; that if we set our minds to it, we can solve anything. Anything except for our problem with gun violence. That can't be fixed. When that problem flares, it's "Hey, wow, that's terrible. Too bad there's nothing to be done about it." Like it's an act of God, or a natural disaster, something beyond our control that we are helpless to do any- thing about. Which defies all logic and reason.
    We live in Florida, a place which has some experience with natural disasters. What happened on Valentine's Day 2018 was neither natural nor an act of God. What happened that day was man-made—which means that as human beings, we have the capacity to do something about it.
    Our generation has the obligation to do something about it.
    In class, we learned about something called entropy. I guess you could say that entropy came to our school that day, and since the shootings, we have seen that there are powerful forces that thrive in chaos. Entropy is what the universe wants to happen. The story of existence and human civilization is the struggle against entropy—working to stick together, not fly apart. To cooperate, not fight. To love, not hate.
    But I'm getting ahead of myself.
    I can't speak for everyone. If I was my fresh- man or sophomore or halfway-through-junior- year self, I would just sit here and explain everything. That's how pretentious and overconfident I was, and probably still am, to some ex- tent. But if there's one thing I learned from the shootings, it's that my freshman or sophomore or halfway-through-junior-year self couldn't have survived that day. That's the reason for this book—we all had to find a way to survive, and we all had to come up with our own answers, but it turned out that all of our answers were just different facets of the same answer. That's why the shootings made us stronger instead of destroying us.
    So I could sit here and tell you the heroic tale of a kid who was so cool under fire and so passionate about justice that he whipped out his camera while the shooter was still shooting. But the truth is that I was thinking about something one of my teachers had been talking about a couple of days before: in the sweep of time billions of people have lived on this planet, yet the world only remembers a few hundred of them. This means that everybody else is just a background character who will be forgotten into the nothingness that is time and the universe. My teacher was talking about being humble, but I'm way too myopic and self-involved for that. My thinking went more like this: "Am I going to be just an- other background character? Is this what it's all been leading up to? Just a bullet to the head?" And I decided, "Okay, I may be another back- ground character, but if I'm going to die I'm going to die telling a damn good story that people need to hear."
    That's why I hit record. I was almost acting out the role that a journalist plays in a war zone, where you have to ask these questions and stay focused on one simple thing. That's what kept me calm. And to be honest, except for one split second when the fear rushed through me, I really thought it was just a drill. Even after we knew it wasn't a drill, it was still so hard to accept...

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Extraordinary acts often result in extraordinary responses. The February 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Florida elicited a response from brother-and-sister David and Lauren Hogg that was--and remains--extraordinary. This audiobook is their story of that horrific day when a classmate gunned down 14 fellow students and three faculty members. David and Lauren do a remarkable job voicing the shock of that day's events, sadness at the loss life, frustration regarding how it could happen, and anger over how little has been done to prevent similar tragedies. Their narration demonstrates maturity and understanding way beyond their years. Their work here as narrators and as authors is beyond what anyone should expect from high school students.
