Yet again it is left to a young person, and female (although I did not want to be anti-male), to stand and be counted on issues of importance. Paxton Smith is the valedictorian student of her year at a high school in Texas – i.e. well clever! And was allowed to make a speech of her choosing due to this. Her speech was made about the horrible and vindictive laws about abortion made by the Republican legislature in Texas. I salute you!
