We at C&L couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised to find our very good friend Ava Lowery of Peace Takes Courage being spotlighted as one of America's "Rebels With a Cause": remarkable youths committed to "changing that which they feel needs changing." This clip we put together is just the part focusing on her, but we highly recommend you check out the full segment online. What makes this 20 minute documentary all the more special is it's actually a Nickelodeon Nick News segment that apparently has been causing quite a fuss among wingers who think it's an effort by the network to brainwash our children into becoming activists. (h/t to our angry friends) It's so nice to see Ava still knows how to drive the right-wingnuts bats**t crazy. You go girl!
How sad it is that the so-called news networks for grown-ups could actually use a few pointers from a channel perhaps best known for bringing us Spongebob Squarepants?
