March For Our Lives

 

On Saturday, March 24th one of the March For Our Lives rallies took place in Morristown, New Jersey. 

 

Protesters came with clever signs and a real sense of accomplishment amongst the surprisingly large crowd.  

 

About 13,000 marchers showed upMorristown was one of about 800 sibling marches to the main one in Washington, DC.

 

It was a cold day but with blue skies and bright sunshine. 

 

Drones flew overhead, speeches were made, and determination for real change pervaded the crowd. 

 

First, we gathered in front of town hall.

  3. What a wonderful turn-out! I fear this cause will require many more marches, and maybe more than marches, because I seriously doubt that your federal government agrees with you. A sad state of affairs. Canadians have been marching, too, although assault weapons are either scarce or non-existent here, but many of us hate the idea of guns...any guns...in the hands of people whose motives are the least bit suspicious or reckless.
    I wish you all success in your endeavours.
    Keep on marching!

    1. Hopefully we can vote in better MOC who will represent what the people actually want!

  4. Awesome! Just think should all the marchers vote in people who can make positive legislation for all.
