On the march

A March for Our Lives event was held Saturday in Steubenville, with a variety of participants, young and old, speaking out against gun violence. Participants began at the Jefferson County Courthouse and then walked along Third Street to the entrance of the Steubenville High School. Statements from area youth and some elderly residents were given. Participants then returned along Fourth Street to the courthouse. Across the country on Saturday hundreds of thousands of teenagers and supporters rallied for tougher laws to fight gun violence. In Washington, D.C., New York City, Denver, Los Angeles and other cities, demonstrators heard from student survivors of last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla.
