The March For Our Lives that occurred on Saturday March 24 brought almost 200,000 people together in New York City, and hundreds of thousands more around the country and the world. I attended because I wanted to be a part of history, but mostly because I wanted to express my frustration about the fact that I don’t understand why there is even still a debate around stricter gun control. Why are there still constant mass shootings? Shouldn’t this have been resolved already? So many lives have been lost, but how is it that the adults in Congress can’t agree to value lives more than guns?
