United States Capitol
On Wednesday, February 14, seventeen students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, were gunned down on the campus. Their names were Alyssa Alhadeff, Scott Beigel, Martin Duque, Nicholas Dworet, Aaron Feis, Jaime Guttenberg, Chris Hixon, Luke Hoyer, Cara Loughran, Gina Montalto, Joaquin Oliver, Alaina Petty, Meadow Pollack, Helena Ramsay, Carmen Schentrup, Alex Schachter, and Peter Wang. Their lives, their community, and our nation are forever changed due to this senseless tragedy — one we know could have been prevented. All students across Florida are only worth $1.05 when dividing up the donations Marco Rubio gets from the National Rifle Association. These are human beings, not just numbers in statistics that gun violence has collected yet again.
I stand in solidarity with our youth in this rally of defiance against our representatives/ law makers who do not work for the people but instead for the NRA & it’s gun obsessed lobbyists. I don’t understand How people’s gun fetish can leverage more power than the lives of American people.
The issue is gun violence against all demographics of people and those who are silent on the issue are complicit so don’t stand in the way. I am tired and devastated to know that at anytime, my cousins, your children, my future children can be slaughtered in elementary school campuses, college campuses, movie theaters, baseball practice fields, and churches UNTIL we hold our representatives accountable or vote them out! There is no excuse for military style/grade weapons to be in the hands of civilians. I know the youth had their voices heard today, and I am so proud of them for organizing & executing this rally and march. All eyes are on the lawmakers and leaders of this nation! Make a wise choice or start cleaning up your resume - YOU work for US. “Spread the word! Have you heard? All across the nation! We are going to be a great generation!” -Yolanda Renee King (MLK’s granddaughter)
