What's Your Take?

Crowds estimated at hundreds of thousands of students and supporters rallied in Washington D.C. and across the country in the “March for Our Lives” protest Saturday sending a message to lawmakers to enact gun reform. The movement was organized by students in response to the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that claimed a total of 17 deaths including students and teachers.

Dozens of students took to the national stage, including Naomi Wadler, an eleven year old African American student. The fifth grader in her moving speech said that she represented African-American girls suffering from gun violence whose “stories don't make the front page of every national newspaper, whose stories don't lead on the evening news.”

What’s your take? Will the voices and protests of our young people bring about real change for gun reform? Will it impact the 2018 midterms?
