Hogg, in his speech at March for Our Lives in Washington, said the goal is to make gun control a central issue in every election.

Additional sister marches took place across OH, in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and beyond.

Many people driving by honked in support and others voiced disagreement.

10,000 San Diegans gathered in Escondido, Encinitas, and Waterfront Park this past Saturday to participate in the "March for our Lives" protest.

Zornick pointed to former congresswoman Donna Edwards, who told a group of students, "Our generation failed you".

"We want to help others make a change", Deitsch said. Students were given t-shirts reading, "We can end gun violence" as well as free pins. "The high-schoolers from Utica's Proctor High School organized it along with other sponsors", she said. "We're in the eighth grade". We prepare our signs, we raise them high.

Earlier this semester, Shaner-Bradford, who grew up in a CT town close to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where a mass shooting in 2012 claimed the lives of 20 first-grade students and six adult staff members, decided that Columbia needed a student group focused on promoting gun-control and formed the group Columbia University Students Against Gun Violence.

Every school walkout, every community rally, every march, has made a difference.

Hodges and Linden aren't in favor banning guns entirely.

"I personally feel like I can't afford to wait until someone does something", Bernstein said.


"There has definitely been some backlash", Hodges said. "If we can get Americans overseas to vote in 2018, that can give us that Congress that passes legislation we care about". She believes that it is important to speak out against gun violence. "If they aren't representing your needs, vote them out and get someone who will". "But it's us leading it, which I think goes to show how much of a force we are in society". The march was a student-led demonstration held in cities around the country to protest gun violence in the wake of the Parkland shooting.

"This is heartfelt", Pareles said, about the young people speaking out on the need for improved gun legislation.

"Most [gun usage] is well-placed", Huebner said.

"I found the march on Saturday to be a really moving experience", said Audrey Osterling, a second-year language arts and secondary education in English student.

After the huge marches, small victories by protesters in 1968 included blocking military recruiting stations and draft boards; calling strikes at colleges and occupying offices; and organizing mass rallies that sometimes spilled into violence between protesters and police. Lapis has lived in Sheridan since 1980. For decades, citizens have been witness to mass shootings and tragedies, many of these happening in our schools. He reiterated that he is not against all guns but opposes the legalization of assault-style weapons.

Many supporters of gun control would dispute this contention. Best was teaching when the 1993 shooting occurred and said he still has flashbacks to the day. March for Our Lives Mumbai was born.

Weitz said teachers and staff have had a few conversations on the topic but not a formal conversation with administrators. The exact opinions of the marchers certainly varied. "I want to be teaching hearts and minds of students and not how to react when they're going to be shot". A GoFundMe campaign helped some students afford the trip. But for many Americans on the Right, it felt like they were under attack. "There are so many more things that could be done that are not about guns themselves". "Anybody who was going to do it would find a weapon".

What is clear, however, is that this year's movements for social justice have inspired many Bucks students, many of whom attended the protests seen in these photos.

"They're very sophisticated", Obama said. "Hopefully the majority votes for people who will not be bought by the NRA and for people who are for common sense gun control laws". To those politicians supported by the NRA, that allow the continued slaughter of our children and our future, I say: "Get your résumés ready". "Otherwise it was just all people saying exactly the same thing". But I had to explain to her that no, President Trump meant having teachers carry guns on their sides, while in their classrooms. "Kids aren't just kids. Kids deserve to be heard, too".
