Certain people have this people to motivate us towards change, but how do great leaders have the ability to inspire others to action? For a movement to be successful, there needs to be core group of leaders who can unite a population, organize protests and marches, who are eagerly engaged, and have the resources to push the movement forward.
world history, Thio High School students and Diane says most movements have a few things in common that make them successful. You need to have a core group of leaders who can unite a population who can organize the protests in the marches who are eagerly engaged and have the resource is to push this movement forward. Not too long ago, Diane unexpectedly went from teaching her students about the history of movements toe watching one unfold, a movement that happened to be led by those very same students. Here's Diane Wilk Rogers on the Ted stage. Yes, I teach history at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. On February 14th, 2000 and 18, my school experienced one of the worst mass school shootings in American history. I don't remember everything, but I do remember I went into crisis mode. I lined up the kids. I held up his side so they could follow me through the hall, just like a fire drill. I heard shots from one direction. We made it outside. We made it to safety. How can we stop the senseless violence? This was the most difficult question I've been asked, and if you're not sure where to start looked at my students is role models. They are armed with incredible communication skills and a sense of citizenship that I find so inspiring. There is a widespread popular anger at an injustice. That's why I say it's a revolution. You know, it's caused by exploitation, but this time it's of our youth. It's of our public school kids today on the show, inspired to action ideas about what it takes, thio inspire people toe, take up a cause or follow a leader and produce riel change and why some movements succeed and others don't. And Dan Walt Rodgers says her students from Parkland remind her of leaders who inspired some of the greatest movements for social change. Not only are these kids really bright and have terrific communications goes, but when I talked about emotional intelligence, they know how to yell without yelling. Hm. If you were there in Washington and you saw Amma and how she took that time to be silent, that to me, was this powerful as Dr Martin Luther King's I have a dream speech because when I went there at first I'm thinking they're not getting it. They're not getting it and then when Emma got up there and she said nothing and she forced people to start to feel and to listen to their own thoughts, that's yelling without yelling. And I was looking around at the crowd. I go, yeah, people are thinking now People want change now. Thes are public school kids engaged in the issue of gun regulation, and their endeavor has moved our hearts, and they shouldn't have to do this on their own, Sure.
