Parkland Survivor Throws Up on Stage, Continues Speech at Protest

Emma Gonzalez Kept America in Stunned Silence to Show How Quickly 17 People Died at Parkland

"This is not the end".

Students hold a banner with the victims of Parkland School while rallying in the street during the "March for Our Lives" demanding stricter gun control laws at the Miami Beach Senior High School, in Miami, Florida, March 24, 2018. "We have the power of change", the elementary school teacher said. We're told all of the students have some connection to gun violence.

While my cousin Adam wasn't harmed, I don't want issues such as this to remain unsolved because people can not attempt to talk to others and understand other perspectives. It's scary enough with the security guards we have in school.

"If we can encourage these people to take action, to be participating in our society and in our politics, that's going to continue to get voters to turn out", Tarr said.

The GIF and an accompanying doctored soon garnered 1,500 retweets and 2,900 likes, with Gab waiting several hours before confirming the hoax was 'obviously a parody/satire'. "People who want to hurt others should not be allowed to have a gun!"


Gun advocates often see any gun reform as an attack on their constitutional rights, as the "right to bear arms" is a right enshrined in the second amendment. He noted his father, a reserve officer, kept a concealed gun in their home, and said "a handgun to protect your home is an important thing if you need to", but he argued "it can't be that easy", to acquire military-style rifles.

But this time, the mood was different.

González described the "long, tearful, chaotic hours in the scorching afternoon sun" that she and other Parkland students and staff spent wondering what had transpired after the shooting. For six minutes and about 20 seconds, on stage in front of the whole world, Emma stood, but she did not always speak. But, she added, "every citizen has a right to exercise their 2nd Amendment right".

The image was altered in Photoshop to show Gonzalez ripping the Constitution in half and has spread quicker on social media than the original image. MTV used the opportunity to celebrate 17 young people leading the fight against gun violence across the country and is now creating a documentary special about the crusade.

With this being said, I remember seeing news alerts about the Mattoon High School shooting, and still can feel the pit in my stomach of when I realized one of my family members was in the school.
