Several young people have an impressive speech during the “March for our Lives,” a day of action against gun violence in the United States.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans – especially teens – are Saturday in Washington, DC on the street come up to tougher wapenwetten to requirements. The ‘March for our lives, ” is an initiative of the students of Stoneman Douglas High. That school was the 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz on Valentine’s day. There were seventeen deaths.

During the day of action were several poignant speeches. One of them was the 9-year-old Yolanda. “My name is Yolanda Renee King, granddaughter of Martin Luther King.’ The girl got a thunderous applause from the tens of thousands of people on the square.

The speech of the King was in the same style as that of her famous grandfather, the civil rights advocate Martin Luther King. “My grandfather had a dream’, says Yolanda. “He wanted people to have children, not on their skin color would rate, but on their character. I also have a dream, that enough is now truly enough. And that this is a world without guns is, as simple as that.’

Yolanda was not the only one that the crowd still got. Also the speech of Emma González touched the audience. The student from Stoneman Douglas High was just 6 minutes and 20 seconds on the stage. That is the time that Nikolas Cruz had 17 of her fellow students to kill.

“For those who still do not understand (why there is a stricter law is needed, red.), because they don’t want to see, I will tell you where it led: to the ground, 2 metres deep.’ The young woman called and then all the names of the deceased students, with tears on the cheeks. Then she was a few minutes silence.

Finally made the eleven-year-old Naomi Wadler impression with her speech. She represents the African-American women who are victims of violence with firearms, but unfortunately not the front page or the journal to get it.” “I represent the women who are simply statistics, in place of gorgeous girls with lots of possibilities.’

The teenagers of Stoneman Douglas High protested in recent weeks loudly, and held in many national news programs a poignant plea for a stricter arms legislation. The protest continued to grow. Eventually there were Saturday a whopping 836 demonstrations for a stricter arms legislation planned in America, and in the rest of the world.
