I believe that children are our future, teach them well and let them MEME the way.
Last weekend, millions of people marched across the United States in the name of March For Our Lives, a rally calling for gun control.
The march, which was set up by students who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting in Parkland, Florida, saw students, parents, celebrities and children as young as nine years old stand up and speak up for common sense gun laws and call out the NRA. Even more marches took place over the world in support of the cause.
Emma Gonzalez, Parkland student, gave a powerful and emotional speech. Samantha Fuentes, who survived her gun shot wounds, threw up on stage in front of the entire crowd and then CARRIED ON with her speech. And the 9-year old grand-daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. took to the stage in DC and called for a "gun-free world." Now, we don't know about you, but the sheer courage and brilliance that the children and teens have been showing throughout this whole process? It's incredible.
As always, the crowds were jam-packed with people carrying creative, moving, bold and hilarious signs but this time, it was all about the memes. Here's some of the best meme-inspired protest signs that were seen on the marches around the globe:

Okay I think we can all agree (despite our different views on gun reform) the best part about the March for Our Lives thing and young people stepping up to try and make a change is the use of memes. No other generation has used this kind of humor like just look at this omg pic.twitter.com/3muFs9QNdz— Natalie Ray (@_natalieray) March 26, 2018
