Bucks Writs - Spring 2018 - 13

The shooting that sparked this
movement may have occurred
in Florida, but there are many
other, less publicized tragic
events that contribute to the state
of where we are as a society.

were speakers set up all around, resembling a concert.
Music played while everybody continued to file into the
area, waiting in anticipation for the speeches to begin.
The first speech was a slam poem written by a senior from
my school. Since she spoke at our school walkout, I knew
what to expect but I was excited to see how other people
would react to her poem. Her words left deafening silence
followed by enthusiastic applause. After her speech, there
were many more powerful orations shared with the crowd.
One speaker especially stuck with me: Annie, from Lenape
Middle School. She talked about how her father bought a

gun and constantly threatened suicide, and how it could
have been avoided if proper background checks were
completed. She said her father was mentally unstable and
thus it left her with an unbelievably hard upbringing. There
were other personal stories shared. I was left with the
lingering thought, all of this is happening in my country,
my state, my hometown, my peers. The shooting that
sparked this movement may have occurred in Florida, but
there are many other, less publicized tragic events that
contribute to the state of where we are as a society.
I admired the courage of the speakers, standing up in
front of thousands of people and speaking from their
hearts. I left the march feeling encouraged to do more,
wanting to spread good. The moment I turn 18, I will
register to vote and vote out politicians that do not agree
to common sense gun safety and reform. Personally, I want
the minimum age to purchase a gun raised to 21 years of
age, the banning of fully automatic assault weapons and
much more thorough background checks. I do not believe
this is too much of a stretch for congress, but if it is, my
generation and I are prepared to vote them out of office. I
am committed to helping end this problem because of the
inspiration from the March for Our Lives, the survivors of
the Parkland, FL shooting and all those who continue to be
affected by gun violence in our society. 
