Florida school shooting survivors to lead 500000 in global protest

Florida school shooting survivors to lead 500000 in global protest

Early Thursday, dozens of bleary-eyed teenagers wearing matching maroon T-shirts gathered in an airport terminal here to head out of town, even though schoolwork was piling up at the end of the academic quarter. "I think this had a deep effect on them".

Boston's march is expected to be one of the largest. More than 800 marches are planned worldwide, according to the group Everytown for Gun Safety.

However, the mood was as heavy as the hearts of several students who read aloud the names of 17 people shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School several weeks ago.

Former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, operate an anti-gun violence organization, and reached out to Kraft for assistance.

"Kids are so insecure at this age and they are trying to figure out which path they are going to take for their life, so this age is absolutely critical", says Macey.

"We're not going to stop until there's a change, because it's ridiculous". A Marjory Stoneman Douglas teen is directing it all, surrounded by nine classmates as they prepare for a march that could bring 30,000 supporters. If adults learn a lasting lesson from them, let it be that youth are already civically engaged, they will not be silent, and they can be powerful allies in effecting change.

Daekwon was one of three 17-year-olds who have been fatally shot in South Bend this year.

"Absolutely", Alhadeff said. "She would be the loudest one". She returns every day to the place where they happened. I have known her from Sawgrass Elementary because her older sister Kaitlyn attended the same school as me and we would see each other in classes.

Ma said she snapped quickly into reporting mode. "It's been hard to go back to a normal routine".

Since the February 14 shooting, more than 140,000 Americans have reached out to volunteer with Moms Demand Action, according to the organization, and another 1.7 million pledged support online. Yared said she once eschewed politics but has become politically active since the shooting.

She said she always has been an advocate of stricter gun control, especially after the June 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.

"Not only will my publication be recording history, but we will be a part of it", she said.

"We want to set something up to pay our respects to the victims of the Florida shooting", said Bayley Hawkins, 13.

"Gun control laws are not just for the United States, they are for all of humanity". We want to prevent that. "We all want to explain our stories".

Years after Lauren was almost killed, she can't understand why students aren't better protected from gunfire. I didn't experience the horrors they heard.

Inspired by King's words, the 17-year-old said she's determined to defeat evil and is doing so with her own words. "I just remember the yelling, and the SWAT teams with their guns".

She said what also helps is being active in the #NeverAgain movement. I firmly believe that is what our founding fathers would have wanted us to do. She brought a quilted coat, something she doesn't need often in Parkland.

The debate over arming teachers was also addressed by the students. "It can't be said Marjory Stoneman Douglas agrees to one thing", he said.

Thousands of students, families and leaders will join Parkland students for the national rally and march at noon on Saturday, March 24.

Instead, at 5 a.m., she'll board a bus in Newtown with her family, heading for Washington. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) during a meeting on gun violence Friday. She and her fellow students hid in the classroom before evacuating safely.

"The kids are super-excited", Miller said.
