Emma González Goes Silent During Her Speech For A Powerful Reason

March for our Lives

March for our Lives

An aide to a Florida legislator was sacked after he called the school shooting survivors crisis actors who travel from tragic place to tragic place making impassioned but bogus political pleas to take away gun rights.

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.

In the video, a crowd chants "enough is enough" at the March for Our Lives rally in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The silence by now had spread to the thousands thronging Pennsylvania Avenue. In ninth grade, I was in a creative writing class where I could actually really effectively communicate what I was feeling, and it especially helped me come to terms with who I was.

"My friends and I might still be 11 and we might still be in elementary school, but we know", she said.

They recalled the moments when they called 911 operators and their parents, as well as turning their classmates over and checking for pulses, only to realize that their friends were dead. This should not happen that an innocent kid going into school to gain knowledge and education does not return home one evening.

By now, you've likely heard of Emma Gonzalez, one of the ferocious leaders of the movement to end gun violence that came in response to the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 of Gonzalez's peers and teachers.

'13 Reasons Why' Second Season To Come With New Warning Video
There is no scheduled release date for 13 Reasons Why season 2, but this move may suggest that an announcement is imminent. It looks as though 13 Reasons Why could be as hard-hitting as ever when it returns for its second series on Netflix .

Parkland survivor Alayah Eastmond directly addressed the intersection of race and gun violence and pledged to continue fighting for change: "Yes, I am a Parkland survivor and an MSD student, but before this, I was a regular black girl".

"I want to make a change in this world", he told the crowd.

"They will try to separates us in demographics, by religion, race, congressional district and class". Samantha Fuentes, who took a bullet to the thigh and whose face was ripped by shrapnel during the Parkland shooting, had to stop during an impassioned speech to vomit. Dworet, who would have turned 18 next month, was killed in the shooting.

The fire alarm at Trenton High School is scary, said 17-year-old Gabrielle James at a march in suburban Detroit. She's not here. She's not here.

"Yeah, yeah", he said, "tell me".

Since the shooting, Pollack has become an advocate for school safety over gun control. "Maybe they will be the voice that will bring the change".

"From where I'm standing, it looks like a march to burn the Constitution and rewrite the parts that they don't like in crayon", Noir said, referring to the young activists leading the rally. "I feel like I can finally take the fight to Congress". A perimeter around the school, just like there is at a courthouse. And the way to do that, he says, is to secure the schools just like we secure stadiums and airports - with armed guards and metal detectors. something he made clear at the White House while meeting with President Trump just days after the shooting.
