Emma Gonzalez Maintains Extraordinary Six Minute Silence After Delivering Powerful Speech at March [View all]

Source: Mediaite

On a day that had already seen a number of powerful and emotional moments, Parkland student Emma Gonzalez took the stage to deliver a one-of-a-kind address.

Noting that the tragic shooting at her high school last month took six minutes and twenty seconds, Gonzales told the crowd that the community of Parkland was “forever altered” by those few minutes.

“Everyone who was there understands,” she declared. “Everyone who has been touched by the cold grip of gun violence understands.”

She continued, “For those who still can’t comprehend because they refuse to, I’ll tell you where it went. Right into the ground, six feet deep. Six minutes and 20 seconds with an ar-15 and my friend, Carmen, would never complain to me about piano practice.”
