Survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, visited Chicago Public Schools students Saturday to brainstorm ideas for next weekend’s March for Our Lives demonstration in Chicago.
…Emma Gonzalez, Sam Zeif and Evelyn Schentrup — who lost her sister Carmen in the Parkland shooting — said they traveled to Chicago to show their support and to continue to urge legislators to pass “common-sense gun measures.”
Zeif said he feels the pain of the students in Chicago, calling it “heartbreaking to know they’ve been feeling this pain and fear for nearly their whole lives.” He said he hopes stronger gun control can curb that pain and fear.
“My personal goal for this is so that my younger brother, and even younger brother, and my kids and their kids, can go to school without having to worry for their lives,” Zeif said. “I want us to complete this campaign of gun reform and remove gun violence from our country so that no one has to go through what we’ve gone through.”
