(Hartford, Connecticut) - It is difficult to watch a child stand silently, with adult determination, holding a sign declaring he has no future.
Across the United States on Saturday March 24th, thousands of children stood with signs, their classmates, their teachers, and their parents demanding government action on gun violence. Most are not old enough to vote. They came together in reaction to the school shooting last month in Parkland, Florida which took 17 lives. In Connecticut, there is a special connection to the issue because of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December of 2012.
