"We can't ignore the issues of gun control that this tragedy raises. And so, I'm asking -- no, demanding -- we take action now!" ~ Cameron Kasky, 17-year-old survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland, Florida
MARCH FOR OUR LIVES MISSION STATEMENT
"On March 24, the collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.
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. (We) 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.
Every kid in this country now goes to school wondering if this day might be their last. We live in fear. It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard. Stand with us on March 24. Refuse to allow one more needless death."
MARCH FOR OUR LIVES on AMELIA ISLAND
In support of, and to honor the victims, survivors, and their families, we'll join in their mission by holding a 'March For Our Lives' on Amelia Island. Inspirational Speakers will help us galvanize as a community in these challenging times. (Names of confirmed Speakers forthcoming.)
It will be an opportunity to be in community with each other, and to talk, hug, cry, and even find a moment to smile together. In the meantime, please join our 'March For Our Lives Support Group, Amelia Island' https://www.facebook.com/groups/587436994938393

The 'March For Our Lives' is about saving lives. If you forget that, take a moment to listen to SHINE, written and performed by MSD Student Survivors Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Peña:
NOTE: This campaign is NOT a fundraiser for the MSD victims and their families, However, any funds that remain after our operating costs have been covered, will be split between their official GoFundMe campaign, and a new Foundation that is being set up by the Sawyer Garrity, Andrea Peña, and their parents. The Foundation will use the arts to help children who've been traumatized by violence.
Please donate to our campaign's operating costs.
My heartfelt thanks : )
