President Obama Salutes March For Our Lives
5 weeks after the tragedy in Parkland, students from Stoneman Douglas High School were joined by over 800k people in D.C., along with nearly 1,000 marches across the globe urging Congress to pass common sense gun reform.
Parkland student, Emma Gonzalez, has become one of the faces for gun reform and her speech at the D.C. rally might eventually lead the 2018 graduate to a future career in politics as the world is in need of more teenagers like Emma.
