March For Our Lives: Full Story & Must-See Details

Five teen survivors of the school shooting massacre in Florida last week are calling for a march on Washington.

What was said and what is being planned?

According to ABC News, while appearing on “This Week,” Cameron Kasky, an 11th-grader, gave the following statement:

“People keep asking us, ‘What about the Stoneman Douglas shooting is going to be different, because this has happened before and change hasn’t come? This is it.”
“People are saying that it’s not time to talk about gun control. And we can respect that. Here’s a time. March 24th in every single city. We are going to be marching together as students begging for our lives.”
“This isn’t about the GOP. This isn’t about the Democrats. This is about the adults. We feel neglected and at this point, you’re either with us or against us.”

One student asked for ‘everyday kids just like us’

Kasky appeared with four of this classmates, other survivors of the Florida shooting: Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Alex Wind and Jaclyn Corin. Gonzalez added that the students wanted to have conversations with local politicians concerning the incident, saying, “We want to give them the opportunity to be on the right side of this.”

She added that all kinds of kids would be needed in the event:

“The kids who need to take part in this are kids, everyday kids just like us. They are students who need to understand that this can very quickly happen to them … They need to join us, and they need to help us get our message across. All students should realize that a school shooting could happen anywhere.”

As seen above, the students have made other media appearances since the shooting, such as appearing on CNN and the CBS program, Face The Nation.
