On February 14, 2018, 17 people were brutally gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. One month later, students across the United States took to the streets for an event known as “March For Our Lives.” The march was intended to let Congress know that the youth believes changes need to be made regarding gun laws in the United States. Judging from the signs you’re about to see, they could not have made their voices clearer!
You won’t believe just how young one brave protester is.
This sign is the number one argument about why the United States needs stricter gun control laws. The student holding this sign is not implying that guns should be taken away. Instead, she is pointing out that weapons have advanced technologically by 300 years while the 2nd Amendment has not.
This student took part in one of 800 “March for our Lives” rallies that occurred on March 24, 2018. The largest march took place at the National Mall in Washington D.C., where the crowd reached over 200,000 demonstraters. Organizers for the event put the total number of participants coming and going at 800,000.
The Youth Are Registering To Vote
This young adult has one very strong message she wants to send Washington. She is 18-years-old and fully intends to use that power to vote. She fully intends to be a part of the change she wants to see. More importantly, she is not the only young role-model taking a stand a choosing to vote. In fact, a major focal point of the “March for Our Lives” rallies was to register young people to vote.
In Washington, for example, voter registration booths were staged at multiple street intersections. One of the rallying cries of these booths was, “Don’t just go out and vote: Get 17 other people to go out and vote.”
Our next protester took her sign to a morbid extreme.
