On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that they end gun violence in our schools and communities. Thousands, if not millions, of people, will join together in over 800+ marches happening around the world. We wanted to do something to help support their cause, and so we created signs that you can print out and use in the march (or for other events in the future).
Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.
Not one more. The above quote was taken from the Mission Statement of those who are behind the March For Our Lives. Here at Illustrated Children’s Ministry, we obviously support children and youth. We stand behind the student-led protest movement that began as a response by students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida to the devastating shooting that took place at their school on February 14, 2018.
Our NOT ONE MORE signs include a list of the dates and locations of every school shooting from Columbine (4/20/99) through the most recent shooting in Great Mills, Maryland (3/20/18). 19 years. 216 school shootings. NOT. ONE. MORE.
You can print out the signs in the following sizes: 8.5×11, 18×24 and 24×36 and we have included both Adobe Illustrator files as well as PDFs. Also included is the above shareable image for using on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
I’m reminded that if anything in our country is going to change when it comes to guns, it’s going to happen because of the younger generations: the high school students, the middle schoolers, our elementary school kids. They are the ones who are losing their friends and classmates to these acts committed with weapons made for war.
However, it’s clear that nothing will change in our country until we get rid of these assault rifles and weapons made for the sole purpose of killing people.
We do hope that this may be a turning point for our country, and we are so inspired by the young people around the country who are leading this March For Our Lives movement. They are the ones who are leading the conversation about gun violence, and we grateful for that.
We hope these posters might be useful or helpful for you. Download them here.
Not. One. More.
