25 of the best signs from March for Our Lives demonstrations around the globe.

Cities all over the planet were crowded on Saturday, March 24, 2018, as hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered to support the empowered teen survivors of the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

The demonstrations featured lively performances, tearful speeches throughout the day, and incredibly clever hand-made signs that drove a single important point home: #EnoughIsEnough.


Some people got a little crafty.

Others let powerful words do all the work.

Kids blew our minds by just telling it like it is.

It turns out you don't need to be human to make a good sign.

Maybe that's why people drew inspiration from wizards and queens (or were straight-up queens themselves).

And a few folks who really know about classroom safety and the lasting impact of violence dropped some major truth bombs.

The children certainly made their voices heard today. Now it's time for all of us to listen.

Read more on the March for Our Lives with stories on Parkland student Emma Gonzalez’s emotional silence, D.C. student Zion Kelly’s speech on losing his twin to gun violence, photos from around the country, and moving words from little kids.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.

Recent tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have sparked a lot of conversation and action on the state level over the issue of gun control. But none may be as encouraging as the most recent one, in which 145 CEOs signed a letter urging the U.S. Senate to take action at their level.
