On March 24, the globe marched across their towns or cities for March For Our Lives. Many Parkland students spoke out. The support shown was, according to the students of Stoneman Douglas High School, “overwhelming”. Below is a collage of images of cities around the world participating in March For Our Lives.
According to the official March The March For Our Lives mission statement is:
“Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of an assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.”
Update: Also, on April 20th, students all across the country walked out to protest about gun laws and the Columbine High School shooting 19 years ago (4/20/1999) that killed 15 people.
