March For Our Lives ~ March 24, 2018

The March For Our Lives is a student-led demonstration against the proliferation of violence in schools and for sensible gun laws.  The movement began with students who survived a gunman's attack on their school which killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman-Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018.  While the students of MSDHS marched in Washington, DC, more than 800 sibling marches were held throughout the US and around the world.  Many Bethany members and friends attended marches in San Francisco and Burlingame, CA.

Thank you to Roberta Henry, Kathryn Pyke and Christine Angeles for sharing their photos.

From young to old, let's hope common sense gun control legislation becomes law.
