    This song is so LIT. You have inspired a movement for renewed peace. Indeed our youths are precious to us.
    Check out my parody on this song (Shawn Mendes Youth) that is ALSO inspired by the March for Our Lives movement: will sure enough be even more inspired to fight against guns and violence throughout the world.
