  1. Marty, I am so glad to see you, and the others out there marching. (I can no longer march, but I was there in spirit).

    May this be the beginning of the end of gun violence and the NRA.

    Fantastic photos Marty!

    I am not yet home. Still in Washington DC.
    We were blessed with good weather.
    The energy was great. The people very respectful and peaceful.
    I am so pleased that I took part. The students spoke and we listen. It is about time!

  3. Kudos to you! I am so proud of our youth today. I marched in the 60s. Against the war and for civil rights. There was some change but my generation went on to raise a generation that didn’t march or protest. Perhaps they didn’t feel the need but as the pendulum swings too far one way and the world changes there is a need. I see the next generation stepping up. Warms my heart.

    1. I think that’s probably true especially with Generation X. But it is nice to see awareness on such a grand scale, and these Parkland kids in particular are nothing short of amazing. A good friend of mine is curious about their educational backgrounds which led up to all of this — in particular the elementary and middle school curricula given to them. That school system did something right.

      1. I have been amazed. I know the parents from Sandy Hook tried really hard to rally the country and it didn’t take. I can’t believe that the NRA is taking such a severe stand. Seriously.

  4. I attended our local march as well. A very nice turnout, thanks to some agreeable weather. No civilian should own military grade weapons. How was that ever allowed?! In an op-ed piece in today’s New York Times, ex-Justice John Paul Stevens calls for an outright REPEAL of the second amendment. He’d better watch his back.

    1. They were all really good signs. At first I was shy and careful not to include people’s faces out of concern for their privacy. Then I started to bold (or just careless?) and begin doing so, and I’m really glad I did. It added more of a human element to the shots obviously. It was very uplifting as all these things tend to be. I just hope this ultimately can make a difference and start to piss off more grandmas and grandpas.
