Clark said last month that the nation is in the process of a generational change.
“And let me tell you what that means to me as a member of another generation,” she said Dec. 4 on NBC.Meet the press. “I remember my middle child waking up with nightmares about climate change. I had a family in the cinema, when the film stopped, my children immediately felt: “There must be a shooter with us in the cinema.”
“This is the type of experience we’re going to bring as we continue to strive to meet this moment of challenge for the American people with progress.”
