Garth Brooks has shown his support for the March For Our Lives events taking place across the US on Saturday.
During his weekly Inside Studio G episode on Facebook on Monday, the country music superstar delivered a powerful message to march organizer Emma Gonzalez and her fellow Parkland classmates who have organized Saturday morning’s march to fight for a safer future for students all around the country.
During the episode, Brooks showed a letter, written by Stoneman Douglas shooting survivor and march organizer Emma Gonzalez that explains what the march is and what it stands for. What stood out to Garth was the line that says “I believe the young people in this country can change the world. And wouldn’t that be something?” Garth tells Emma that the world isn’t just yours to change, “it’s yours!” He went on to tell her to “take it and shape it” and that how you march is so important. Brooks encouraged her to “be tolerant and be loving. And do not let hate win!”
The singer also talked about a song that he co-wrote with Tony Arata, but never recorded, that has a wonderful line saying “to matter then, it must matter now.” He said that it makes him think of Emma and the students marching, and that they “get it.” Garth treated his viewers to a powerful delivery of the song, which shares a message of togetherness and change.
