Pensacola Woman & Daughter To Attend March For Our Lives in DC

The Parkland kids keep checking their privilege

Mei-Ling Ho-Shing, 17, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., made a visit March 23, 2018, to the Rev. Dr., Martin Luther King Jr, monument in Washington a day before the March for Our Lives rally.

March for Our Lives is a demonstration created and organized by #NeverAgain, a group of students who survived the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Event organizers, in their permitting request to hold the event, said they expect up to 500,000 people to show up for the rally.

"I was one of the girls who hated high school", she said.

She'll bring the sign on a bus Friday night, traveling along with 34 other students from the Met High School in Providence to Washington, D.C. overnight.

According to the press release, speakers will include MSD students that survived the shootings, as well as those who met with local and national lawmakers.

They say they're ready to march and demand the end of gun violence.

For example, she says notes the challenge of shepherding an entire kindergarten class from story time into a safe place in a timely manner. I lost my uncle due to gun violence in Brooklyn 15 years ago, and nothing has changed.

"They don't know what it's like to be 20 feet from an AR-15", Parkland survivor Alfonso Calderon, 16, told students at a Washington charter school this week, referring to U.S. lawmakers.

"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", organizers wrote on the event's website.

In the aftermath of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Laatsch has a heightened awareness of school safety and gun control, especially in relation to assault rifles.

Gable said he was riled up when nothing changed after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where 26 young kids and staff members died.

"We want to make sure that we bless and respect the fact that we are on Kumeyaay land", he said.

She is not involved with DC Teens Action. "The law does not protect the school, the law protects the people who can buy those guns".

"I get great energy from the young people".

Saturday, March 24, 10:00 a.m.

"I just think the support is really important, but also it doesn't happen again so nobody else has to go through it", said Lindsey.

"What we can do is reach out to our politicians, and especially for students, register to vote and once you register to vote, know who you're voting for", said Madison Ramberac, a senior at Tampa Catholic.
