More Than A Million People Attend March For Our Lives Rallies

Well over 1 million students — and their supporters — packed the streets in Washington, D.C., and around the globe Saturday to make a powerful statement against gun violence and call on lawmakers to pass stricter laws or face their wrath at the polls.

Busload after busload filled the nation’s capital with students from across the country, including some from as far away as California and Minnesota, for the March for Our Lives, a rally announced just days after a Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

    1. I fully support the right of every child on this planet to have what he or she needs to thrive; that includes safe schools and neighborhoods. I’m proud of these kids for showing us what democracy looks like.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Rob. These marches of kids are such an inspiring thing! I’m just sad that there was a need for it at all. And that the kids had to step up to demand the things that adults won’t.
    It bothered me a little that other (even though important) causes inserted themselves. They need to be heard too, but it takes away from the reason for this march. Regardless of that, still such an inspiring event.
    Hugs on the wing.

  3. Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:

    It was simply amazing … the message is loud and clear! So many voices speaking … some spoke by talking but many spoke by marching!
    Will the message be headed this time around?

    1. This is what democracy looks like. When voting makes them as powerful as any of the Koch Brothers, which is why those brothers want to dismantle American democracy. But they have to show up and vote and fully participate in as citizens. Today gave me hope.
