Macrina Piloto Alberto Ardila// Parkland students rally ahead of March For Our Lives - EntornoInteligente

A pep rally intended to inspire Parkland students ahead of the upcoming national march against gun violence took on a new sense of urgency on Tuesday following a shooting at a Maryland high school.

The afternoon rally at the Parkland Equestrian Center had been planned as a motivational send-off for students headed to Washington, D.C., for the March 24 March For Our Lives, as well as for those staying behind to demonstrate in Parkland.

But the attack at Great Mills High School in Maryland, where earlier in the day a student armed with a handgun had injured two of his classmates, created a chilling backdrop for the event.

?I am sure you all have heard today, and it disturbs me to my core, that there was yet another school shooting,? said Demitri Hoth, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and one of the event organizers, addressing roughly 60 people gathered at the park.

?Let us send our thoughts and prayers to them, but not only that. Let us do what our politicians did not do when our school was transformed into a battleground. Let us fight for justice. Let us extend our hand to every student, teacher, parent to come together to demand that our government do something.
