David Hogg: They’ve Tried To Kill Me Seven Times

“In the past year, there have been seven assassination attempts. But I also realize, if they kill me, that’s probably the stupidest thing they could do to try to end the movement. Because that would make it even more successful in the end. Because it would invigorate us and create f—ing change. Honestly, I realize that it’s horrible that I have to live through this, and it is traumatizing.  But you eventually become desensitized to it.

“Like, oh, your house got SWAT-ted. You got a call from the police saying someone said that everyone in your family had been killed and that you are being held hostage for $100,000. Right? That becomes part of daily life. It’s just something that you have to get through. But I mean, what am I going to do? Stop?” – Parkland activist David Hogg, speaking to the Washington Post.
