A Very Timely Hamildrop

Just a few days ago, children across the country walked out of their schools to protest gun violence. On March 24, the March for Our Lives will take place in Washington D.C. and other communities, for a similar purpose. And today, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt released the newest Hamildrop, Found Tonight, the proceeds of which will go to benefit March for Our Lives:

It's amazing how many issues currently being debated in this country can be found in Hamilton: immigration and the contribution of immigrants, and now gun violence and the death of our children. While the situation in which Alexander Hamilton lost his son Philip is different from what is happening in our country now, a parallel can still be made. Perhaps that is why Hamilton has resonated with so many people.
