Boston Latin Academy student Vikiana Petit-homme writes in the Boston Herald: Following the Parkland tragedy, students across the country joined to create a gun-reform movement. Gun violence, sadly, has existed far longer and people have been protesting for years, especially communities of color.
Now that we, as youth, have national attention and people are listening to us, it is imperative that we lift the voices of the people that have been left behind. I march today to represent those who are not alive to speak for themselves. I march for my classmates. I march for my little cousins. I march for my life.
