March For Our Lives — Emma González emerges as an inspiring figure of Nonviolent Protest

What the students of Parkland, Florida were able to organize this past weekend will not be forgotten any time soon. No matter what your opinion is on gun control and what level of change our country needs, it’s hard to not be inspired by the youth who came out to speak across the country. In particular, Emma González has become a household name.

If you haven’t seen Emma’s speech or some of the others from teenagers across the country this Sunday — you really owe it to yourself to watch as many as you can find. Go in with an Open Mind! These citizens may come from a different generation than you, but they love the same country that you do.

Emma’s powerful moment of silence in Washington DC this Sunday will be forever remembered — the chilling amount of time representing how long the gunman haunted her high school in Parkland, Florida. The coverage has already put her moment in the spotlight:
