March for Our Lives took place this weekend, bringing people from around the world together in a loud call to end gun violence. We are so proud of our college student, Tina, who felt that she could be a part of the solution. Standing up for what you believe in is something we hope all our kids learn to do!
“Even though I have never been personally effect by gun violence, there have been many close calls. I always feel afraid that there is a chance I could get shot in different places I go to such as school, the movies or even my church. This is the norm for me and my generation. We’ve had enough of feeling afraid,” Tina said. “I march so my family and I won’t have to fear if we will be the next victim of gun violence. I march for everyone who has been effect by gun violence. I march for all the fallen angels of gun violence. I march for everyone in my generation and the following generations to never have to fear if they are going to be the next victim of gun violence”.
All children deserve to feel safe in school. For foster children, sometimes it is the only place that they feel safe. We hope their voices are heard and that they see changes that make them feel at ease to learn. March for Our Lives supporter Dwayne Wade put it well when he said, “The message is to get youth to understand the power of their voice…to understand the power that they have. The magnitude was great.”
