I applaud the students for protesting.
At the same time, the poll found that almost half of Americans do not expect elected officials to take action.
Another potential gap highlighted was Federal Bureau of Investigation agents failing to act on tips after Cruz published threats on YouTube under his own name. "[.] The issue isn't law-abiding citizens having a weapon".
Although President Donald Trump and Congress won't be in Washington for the march, Gonzalez and Wind said they're not discouraged by that.
There are so very many things, so many steps to take. "And something that's happened to me in these 20 years is that I don't just mourn Westside".
"I have a dream that enough is enough, and that this should be a gun-free world, period". She then revealed that the pause equaled the amount of time that her high school had been terrorized by the shooter. "Parkland happened - nothing's changed", Eastmond said Thursday. They came wearing stickers that read, "227 days until midterm elections" and buttons that read "We call BS" and "Oprah 2020".
Samantha Fuentes, right, said, "I just threw up on worldwide television, and it feels great!"
The stated goal of many of these walkouts is to get politicians to do something about school safety and gun violence.
The suspect in the Parkland shooting, former student Nikolas Cruz, 19, had a history of mental issues, numerous encounters with police and was expelled from Stoneman Douglas previous year for disciplinary problems.
At Miami Beach's Collins Park, one of the march stops, Coral Gables resident Jasmine Folden said the effort led by "articulate, informed" Douglas High students might just lead to real legislative change. "Everyone who has been touched by the cold grip of gun violence understands". She told Newsweek that the way the students of Parkland and those across the country have responded gives her hope for future generations. We can not let that happen, but we will let that happen if we continue only to be angry. She volunteered for the cause after her mother, a former second-grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School, survived the 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. She didn't, but she says she thinks of that moment all the time. Unfortunately, one of the main reasons that this has been covered so closely is that we are an affluent white community.
In Toronto, marchers carried signs protesting both gun violence in the United States and recent shootings that have plagued the city as they marched from a downtown square to the U.S. Consulate. The aspiring Olympic swimmer would have turned 18 on Saturday.
Parkland student Autumn McKinney told the Herald that she wants alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz to know: "Even though he did something awful, it started something wonderful". They have also partnered with well-funded liberal groups such as Everytown for Gun Safety, the gun control advocacy group founded by former NY mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg. Paul McCartney marched in New York City, honoring fellow Beatle John Lennon, who was shot and killed in the city in 1980.
The young US organizers have won kudos and cash from dozens of celebrities, with singers Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande, as well as "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, among those performing in Washington.
