Tomorrow can be a tipping point!
Students, teachers, parents and allies around the nation are preparing to “march for their lives” next month to rally for increased gun control and school safety measures.
Less than a week ago, the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida experienced tragedy. Seventeen people — classmates and teachers — were allegedly killed by 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz. Cruz was armed with an AR-15 rifle that he had legally purchased, authorities said.
Rather than wait for lawmakers to make a change, the survivors of the shooting are taking matters into their own hands – organizing, and taking action. From their parents’ living rooms, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students are planning a march on Washington, D.C. called March for Our Lives.
The message is very clear!
- All children have a right to be safe: at school; at home; and on the streets and playgrounds of their neighborhoods.
- We expect adults to protect us!
- It is time for congress and state and local government to enact and enforce laws that keep children safe!
- If legislators keep listening to special interest groups like the NRA, they will be voted out!
Call, text, email your grandkids.
Ask them what they think and what they are doing tomorrow.
If they are Marching, join them!
