Have you seen posts about a "March For Our Lives" rally for Santa Fe this weekend? It all seems to have started with an event post on Facebook. The page seems to have been taken down since Tuesday morning. But here's the thing: it listed guests and included a woman Emily Korcenski, who was at the Charlottesville rally and two parkland students. Well, neither students, Cameron Kasky or David Hogg have personally commented about it. And the official twitter account for "March For Our Lives Houston" called the event "fake news." Emily posted on the event page saying she has nothing to do with the organization and is *not the organizer." So there may very well be a rally -- but it is *not* organized

As the nation mourns at least 10 people killed and at least 10 more injured in a mass shooting at a Texas high school Friday, teens across the country expressed solidarity with the victims and survivors. Among them were the young organizers of the Phoenix version of March for our Lives, a coalition of rallies demanding gun-control action that drew protesters into the streets for more than 800 marches in every U.S. state and across several continents in March. Friday's shooting was the latest in a long line of mass shootings in schools. "I was filled with a lot of grief. I cried a lot," 17-year-old Jordan Harb said Friday afternoon. "I've had kids cry in my classes, and it's a lot of fear."
Prom is an important night in every teen's life, but for seniors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the event served as an immensely hopeful celebration and a night to remember those lost. On Saturday, months after a mass shooting killed 17 members of the Parkland, Florida school community on Feb 14., students came together to attend their senior prom, and honor the four seniors killed in the attack. Many students, including well-known activists like Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, and Delaney Tarr, shared photos of the big night, creative promposals, and touching tributes to fallen friends.
