Parkland, Florida

THIS YOUTH

One of the most unique things about this trip is that we just so happened to stumble across powerful, magical experiences without it ever being planned.

On March 24th, 2018, March For Our Lives launch around the world, which was initially sparked by the Stoneman Douglas high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. We hadn't planned it, but the Traveling Good team pulled into Parkland the day before the march was happening.  The next morning we gathered at a location where the buses were taking the community to the march site. Hundreds and hundreds of people piled into buses.  Some were excited, some were quiet.  A vast majority had brought a sign that sported a quote to show their support.

When we arrived there were tens of thousands of people all crowded around a central podium.  There was every news channel imaginable scrambling around to get their perfect angles. Suddenly speakers started coming up.  Students and teachers cycled up to the podium talking about the horrific day they experienced.
