Here Are Some Signs From Today’s Incredible ‘March For Our Lives’ Rally

Today, thousands marched in Washington DC. for the flagship March For Our Lives event, honouring the 17 innocent lives lost in the mass shooting at Marjory Douglas High School earlier this year.

Survivor, Emma González delivered an incredibly emotional and powerful speech honouring her friends. During the six minute and 20 second speech, Emma said nothing.

Then a timer went off ending her silence,

“Since the time I came out here, it has been six minutes and 20 seconds. The shooter has ceased shooting, and will soon abandon his rifle, blend in with the students as they escape, and walk free for an hour before arrest.

Fight for your lives, before it’s someone else’s job.”

Here are some of the signs from the March For Our Lives’ rallies.

People of influence across the country also joined Emma in protesting the current gun laws in the United States. 

Yolanda King, granddaughter of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr also took to the stage and echoing her grandfather’s words said,

“My grandfather had a dream that his four little children would not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the concept of their character. I have a dream that enough is enough, and that this should be a gun-free world, period.” 

Paul McCartney marched for John Lennon in New York city. According to a CNN reporter, McCartney said, “One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here, so it’s important to me.” 

Stranger Things star, Millie Bobby Brown was at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards today when she used her influence to show her support for the march.

March For Our Lives created a petition to demand change from the government.
