Islanders of all ages came together on Saturday, March 24 for March for Our Lives – a nationwide demonstration sparked by the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida. People gathered on the courthouse lawn at noon where a group of Friday Harbor students, clad in orange “#enough” T-shirts, voiced their opinions on school shootings and gun reform. The students led civilians on a sidewalk march. Participants in the march voiced their opinions on handwritten signs, with messages ranging from “Give Peace a Chance” and “Arms are for Hugging” to “Books – Not Bullets” and “Your Kid Could Be Next.” More than 800 sister marches took place the same day, around the country, including the main protest in Washington D.C.
