Later this morning, my family and I will join hundreds of thousands of America's school-children, on the National Mall, here in Washington, DC, for the "March for Our Lives" event demanding action on gun control by lawmakers in the wake of far too many school shootings across the nation.
From the state of Colorado to Connecticut and other states in between and recently in the state of Florida, gun violence - with innocent children as victims, has claimed too many lives in the United States (US). A recent display of 7,000 pairs of shoes on the lawn at the US Capitol building, was starkly indicative of the too large a number of children-victims from gun violence.
Too many lives, hopes, ambitions, passions and talents have been gunned-down as politicians appease the gun lobby instead of protecting the Republic's future - our children.
Therefore, as a reminder and as a wake-up call to lawmakers and the presidency of the need for stricter gun control laws in the US, we will "March for Our Lives" today with a view that others may keep their lives tomorrow and beyond.
