On March 24, Emma González took the stage at the March For Our Lives in Washington DC and gave a chilling speech about the 17 classmates she lost when 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018.
"Six minutes and about 20 seconds. In a little over six minutes, 17 of our friends were taken from us, 15 were injured, and everyone, absolutely everyone in the Douglas community, was forever altered," she said. González then called out the names of her deceased classmates with tears in her eyes, until she stopped suddenly for a prolonged moment of silence
The unbelievably brave and compassionate teenager stayed completely quiet until a timer she had went off. "Since the time that I came out here it has been 6 minutes and 20 seconds . . . Fight for your lives, before it's someone else's job," she said.
