In the case of Emma Gonzalez, born the daughter of a Cuban immigrant, at least two out of the three apply, and that isn't bad for an 18-year-old girl who has become the standard-bearer for a newly-energized American movement.
Like a 21st Century Joan of Arc, locks shorn and gender irrelevant, Emma leads her stalwart young troops in the war against gun violence in America,
...her sword and shield the power of her words,
...the power of her silence,
Maybe afterwards there was no more time for fear, no time for hesitation or indecision, maybe Emma and her young cohorts were too quickly propelled into action by the trauma of the surreal horror they’d been plunged into, the true surreality of which being that it has become so commonplace a horror in this country.
Now Emma Gonzalez is leading a battle against the behemoth Empire of the National Rifle Association with its war treasury of billions, its massive support by the American government, and its foot soldiers in the millions.
Though she be but little, she is fierce.
