Which Lives March for Our Lives Is Missing

Participants gather during the March For Our Lives Parkland event Saturday

Student survivors of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month took center stage at the March for Our Lives in Washington, where a busload of students from East Hampton joined teens from around the country. President Jean Knapp said they usually have 15 or 20. In a time of mistrust toward numerous nation's foundational institutions, once again young people are using our fundamental freedoms to assemble and speak to power. "They're stepping off of the sidelines and into the action".

"I am concerned for sensible gun control and very upset that Washington D.C. has done nothing about it", Schubert said.

"Our legislators should be working their butts off to change that and to make sure that it never happens again", Tates Creek High School student Sarah Ali told the audience. With the nation's Capitol building visible in the distance, I marched, chanted, and hoped alongside almost one million others who, like me, are fed up.

"They have been told that it is a disruption to the educational process, and I say to them, the real disruption to the educational process is staring down the barrel of a gun", Ryan Deitsch, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School said in a speech, according to CNN.

Calling themselves the Pennridge 225, students from the Bucks County school have gone viral on social media by turning Saturday detentions for walking out of class to protest gun violence into weekly sit-in protests.

"We had a great turnout, all things considered", she said.

"Our voices are some of the most powerful voices out there".

Organisers want the US Congress, many of whose members are up for re-election in November, to ban the sale of assault weapons like the one used in the Florida rampage and to tighten background checks for gun buyers.

"We went to the same school and shared the same friends".

Nearby, a small group of gun rights supporters peacefully protested. They described the atmosphere in one word - unity. Little children carried signs reading "Protect me-don't kill me", and parents held ones giving the U.S. elected leadership mid-term grades: "A+ from NRA = F from parents and children". "To know that we're trying to guarantee that no other child ends up like they did, shot dead in a classroom, I think that that's the best way to pay respect to them".

He believes increased safety measures are needed in schools to prevent mass shootings. That this should be a gun-free world.

Time reports that D.C. officials were prepared for a crowd of about 500,000-close to the same number that showed up for the Women's March on the day following Donald Trump's inauguration in 2017.

Azul Ponce and Olivia Milligan-Choe were two of the event's student organizers.

When asked how he responded to Kashuv's repeated claims that the pro-gun control students wanted to do away with the Second Amendment, Kasky, who helped organized the March for Our Lives event, said on "Fox News Sunday" that "we are not trying to take everybody's guns away".

Fitz, a senior at Warren Hills High School in Washington, N.J., said she came to Easton with some of her classmates to take part in the march because she was hoping it would spark change.
