The marches Saturday came a little more than a month after the Valentine's Day school rampage in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 students and teachers.
The largest turnout was in the nation's capital, but solidarity was shown nationwide with protesters from toddlers to grandparents joining to echo the call of Parkland's high school students that "enough is enough."
Initially I was planning to only do some sightseeing in New York this weekend, but when I saw that I would be here on the day the “March for our lives” takes place - i knew what to do. Even though I’m not living in the US, I want to show my solidarity, because there is always strength in numbers! Kids shouldn’t have to do safety drills in school to know what to do if a shooter enters the school! People shouldn’t have to live in fear of getting shot! Guns are not needed for a safe and free live! #marchforourlives #endgunviolence #unite #makelovenotwar #peace #newyorkcity #notagain #neveragain #love #solidarity
