Marches Were Held All Over the US Today
On Saturday March 24, 2018 America Took to the Streets to #DEMAND Gun Control. The March for our Lives Events were held in almost every City and My9oh4 was at Hemming Park keeping Jacksonville Florida #LockedIN.
According the the Mission Statement on March For Our Lives….. March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. Student organizers planned the march in collaboration with the nonprofit organization Everytown for Gun Safety!
Everytown for Gun Safety is an American nonprofit organization which advocates for gun control and against gun violence. Everytown was founded in 2014, combining ‘Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ and ‘Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’. Everytown for Gun Safety is largely bankrolled by Michael Bloomberg, who also founded the group.
There needs to be CHANGE! There needs to be Reform! But Let us NOT use our YOUTH to get your WAY!
Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.
School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing. The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.
