On February 14, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School had their lives changed when a gunman killed 14 students and three staff members in a rampage, but on March 24, they came together with a message of their own.
They created the March for Our Lives protest, which took place Saturday as a nationwide mobilization against gun violence. More than 720 March for Our Lives events were planned worldwide, all organized by survivors of the Stoneman Douglas shooting, who joined in the demonstration themselves.
