Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives. On March 24, students of Manhattanville College will take to the quad to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today.
March For Our Lives was organized by Parkland students following the horrific events in Florida. They are bringing light to a nationwide epidemic. The Hudson Valley has been victim to awful gun violence scares in schools. Come down to the Walkway and show your support for common sense gun legislation!
