The Loudest Silence

“Emma Gonzalez Is Responsible for the Loudest Silence in the History of US Social Protest” 

Thousands of students from all across the United States came together today to participate in the March For Our Lives rallies. One of the most powerful and heart-wrenching moments occurred during Emma Gonzalez’s speech, when she paused for 6 minutes and 20 seconds to mark the amount of time that the shooter open fired in Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School.

I have also included some other speeches from today’s march in Washington DC, the exemplify the horrific tragedies of gun violence rampant throughout the United States. These students ought to be an inspiration to all of us – having the drive and energy to articulate such profound emotion and desire for real change in response to unimaginable loss.
