WEST SEATTLE WEEKEND SCENE: Junction demonstration

On Saturday, as thousands rallied across the country against gun violence, the March For Our Lives events were originally supposed to include a West Seattle Junction demonstration too, but it was canceled earlier in the week. However, Anni and friends showed up anyway. She sent the photo and report today:

Our small group showed up at the WS Junction for a gun-reform rally that we didn’t know had been canceled. From 1-2 PM we crossed during the walk lights, carrying signs and chanting slogans, such as “Keep Our Children Safe”. We had a good response based on friendly thumbs-ups and horn-honking. This felt like a purposeful hour to our group, which included 5 teachers.

    I love you guys!! Unfortunately, all our shirts and placards went to Olympia. There was no way for me to contact anyone because I wasn’t given any info about those planning to attend. Just know that if I had known you were there, I would have been there with y’all!

    really with the sign “your thoughts and prayers are killing us”??? I guess I get the sentiment, but wow.

    If you truly “get the sentiment” then there is no “wow”.  Thought and prayers are the equivalents of doing nothing while waving a virtue flag, so I commend the sign-maker for challenging the status quo.

Sorry, comment time is over.
