"I'm so glad that active participation continues to be a trend", she said, adding that she was surprised at the quick pace with which alumni all over the country came together on social media to support the shooting victims.
"Some here today may be disappointed that change is not coming fast enough", he said. We the people can fix this.
At 10 a.m. on Friday, the weather was brisk and the sky was clear for a handsome day.
After naming the students killed on February 14, Kasky noted former student Nicholas Dworet. "'You'll be greatly missed, Alyssa. Let's keep the guns out of the hands of the wrong people and keep them in the hands of the safe and the reasonable.so either you can join us or be on the side of history who prioritized their guns over the lives of others".
"Never again will our voices - students' voices - be shunned into silence". "We can not "keep America great" if we can not keep America safe", she added, using air quotes to reference President Donald Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again". She speaks of an "unspoken fear" among students, especially after someone made recent threats to her school.
Later on in the segment, Kashuv said that numerous marchers "truly don't know what they are marching for", claiming he spoke to many individuals in the march and they told him they are marching to end school violence.
Gonzalez is one of several teens from the school to become gun control activists in the wake of the shooting.
The video, released Friday by the Broward County Sheriff's office, shows deputies cuffing a relaxed Zachary Cruz, clad in a black baseball cap and white Hurley T-shirt as he sits on a well-manicured lawn near Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Monday.
Zelm and Wesolowski said they were really surprised by the turnout. "We can make this a better world, a better place for everyone".
"Kids are so insecure at this age and they are trying to figure out which path they are going to take for their life, so this age is absolutely critical", says Macey.
Seasoned activists have marveled at what the students accomplished so far, including a sweeping gun bill in Florida and school walkouts attended by over a million students last week, according to organizers Women's March. As a member of the Stoneman Douglas debate team, I researched universal background checks for all gun sales and transfers of ownership for the November Public Forum Debate topic. Dowd said she hid in the photo closet during the shooting, which happened during one of the school periods when the paper meets.
Standing in silence are Tessa Weidner, Sophia Yager-Molt, Hannah Strawmyer and Mackenzie Fraker.
Kasky recalled how in the days after the attack people kept asking him if George Soros was funding them.
"I stand with these students, in Alyssa's honor, and I will cheer them on as they fight for much-needed change", she writes. A pro bono attorney helped them set up a nonprofit to handle donations. They learned how to address their needs and advocate for themselves and do it in a respectful manor.
