Samuel Getachew is class president at Oakland Tech #EthiopiansInCalifornia

Oakland Tech sophomore class president Samuel Getachew, 15, wrote a poem about guns and racism, which he recited on Wednesday morning to cheers on the steps of his school during the March  For Our lives protest.

It's title is "Arms" and the last, and arguably most powerful, line is "when did America fall so in love with the sound of gunshots that she wanted to hear them on her birthday?"
