March for our Lives gets underway today in Washington, DC

A student holds a sign reading'Protest children not guns in Washington DC

'Seventeen people. My peers, my teachers, they died, ' Tarr told CBS News. That's what we've been really trying to promote - unity.

Pfeiffer, an 18-year-old senior, said he now scans restaurants and shopping plazas for potential danger and found himself looking over his shoulder in school hallways when classes resumed last month after the deadliest mass shooting at a high school in US history.

The Obamas heartfelt letter to the students affected by the Parkland School shooting moved many to tears.

They recalled the moments when they called 911 operators and their parents, as well as turning their classmates over and checking for pulses, only to realize that their friends were dead.

"I'm so glad that active participation continues to be a trend", she said, adding that she was surprised at the quick pace with which alumni all over the country came together on social media to support the shooting victims.

Florida's professional hockey team, The Panthers, let the team use their private plane to get to the tournament.

The march - organized by the Stoneman Douglas student group #NeverAgain and the gun control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety - is the culmination of a monthlong effort to honor the victims of the shooting, and to push for an end to gun violence. We are the change.

Dana McElroy, an attorney representing the Sun Sentinel and a group of media organizations that pushed for the video's release, said the footage that was made public March 15 "appears to be incomplete, edited and not entirely responsive" to the original request.

The event also drew students from outside of Florida. "I knew this would have to get published eventually", she said.

According to the arrest report, Cruz wanted to "reflect on the school shooting and to soak it in".

Over the past week, heated discussions have been heard across the country about students participating in walkouts March 13. "I'm passionate about the subject, but I don't want to hurt anybody because they're going through a lot". She's not here. She's not here.

"I definitely look around, take in my surroundings a little more just to make sure that I can catch whatever I can, and I've never done that before", he said.

After the shooting, Ho-Shing said she felt frustrated after doing extensive research about state and national gun laws.

Several student organizers have become mainstays on national TV, promoting the marches, and they landed on the cover of Time magazine.

'I would tell them to focus their energy on something that's achievable that we could accomplish right now. "No, we don't have random mass shootings; we have daily shootings". You are just getting a taste of what high school is like. The new norm at a school in the future is going to be like going to the airport. that's what society has brought us to'. More than 800 marches are planned in cities across America and dozens of locations overseas to be held at roughly the same time.
