Why I marched.

Why I marched.

I marched for my grandchildren. I marched for students and educators. I marched for gun violence survivors and their families. I marched for those whose lives were taken too soon.

Thank you to the courageous young adults leading this movement. Meet some of the fellow marchers, supporters, and team members who attended the March for our Lives in Columbus, Ohio.

“I’m going to be a teacher and I don’t want to have to be armed to protect my students. I want to make a difference in children’s lives, and ensure through my work that they can go on to be good, productive citizens.” – Noa.

“My wife and I are here for our 4 kids. I’m a registered gun owner and a hunter and we simply don’t need these weapons.” – Reese

Madeline is right.

“When I was a kid, the classroom was a place of safety, security, and love. I’m disappointed and sad that today’s students have to fear for their lives going to school. That’s just one reason I’m here today.” – Ron

“As a doctor, I see unpreventable tragedies that claim lives every day. I am marching because mass shootings do not belong on that list, and as a mom, I refuse to let my daughter grow up in a world where she has to live with that fear.” – Karilyn (with Elodie and Josh)

You will change Ohio; you will change the country. This is happening in every major city in America. You do this, we take this country in an entirely different direction. You, today, make them start doing their job.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
