This from the book hit me heavily when I read it. Here's the future Bradbury warned us of:

"I’m afraid of children my own age. They kill each other. Did it always use to be that way? My uncle says no. Six of my friends have been shot in the last year alone. Ten of them died in car wrecks. I’m afraid of them and they don’t like me because I’m afraid. My uncle says his grandfather remembered when children didn’t kill each other. But that was a long time ago when they had things different."

Yeah, I think I read your post of that just after going to the March For Our Lives. Very poignant and heartbreaking.
