March For Our Lives Isn't Just About Mass Shootings
Alex Brook Lynn/The Daily Beast"People die by guns every single day. No matter how they got the gun, no matter how they got shot, they're still dead at the end of the day." - Julia Spoor

When Julia Spoor was eight years old, her father Scott used a gun to take his own life. To her, of all the factors in her dad's death, the gun was the most damning. "With other methods of suicide there's still a chance, there is more time between the act and death for the possibility of a reversal, but not with a gun," Spoor said.

By the age of 12, Julia had become involved in advocating for more active gun control laws. Suicide by gun is in many ways different from a mass shooting in a school, or gang violence inside a city's most depressed areas, but Julia stresses that guns are the one, clear common denominator.

"It was a normal day and unfortunately, I lost two people in my class and six were hit," she said at a recent news conference in Washington, D.C.  She had just turned 17 that day. "I was on the wrong side of the class and no student should have to cover themselves with a deceased classmate to survive. But I was that student."

Eastmond was studying Holocaust history during fourth period class when the gunman started shooting into her classroom on February 14.

From Parkland to Chicago, Hope Rises for Overdue Gun Violence Reforms
Anyone who knew to listen might have heard a murdered musician playing his distinctively pulsing bass from on high as the five buses embarked from Saint Sabina Church in Chicago for the March for Life in Washington at 7:30 pm Friday.

On board the second bus with a draft of a speech he was to give at Saturday's gathering was 19-year-old Trevon "Tre" Bosley, who had been just eight when his remarkably talented older brother was gunned down in a case of mistaken identity in 2006.

Terrell Bosley had been a rising star in the Chicago gospel scene nicknamed "Mr. Music" as he often played at three or more churches on a weekend. He summoned uncommon feeling from his bass guitar, his right hand working the frets and his left the strings, the opposite of the usual for a righty. He would arrive two hours early to rehearse for a service and was taking a break in the parking lot at the Lights of Zion church when shots rang out. His girlfriend ran up to him asking if anybody had been shot and saw blood on his shoulder. The pastor knelt at his side, kissing him and telling him he would be all right.
