For nearly six minutes Saturday, school shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez stood at a podium in front of nearly 1 million people, on national television, and said nothing.

It was a remarkable and chilling silence — one that rang louder than the star-studded musical performances that took the stage in Washington, D.C., before Gonzalez got up to speak.

“Six minutes and about 20 seconds. In a little over six minutes, 17 of our friends were taken from us.” said Gonzalez, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, as she opened her speech at March for Our Lives. She then named all the victims who died in the Parkland, Florida, school massacre last month, and promptly began her long moment of silence.

Gonzalez’s statement was just one of many hauntingly poignant moments that tore open hearts and moved ralliers to tears. Stoneman Douglas student Aalayah Eastmond transported marchers to her classroom on Feb. 14. She was studying Holocaust history when bullets started flying in — her classroom was the gunman’s third. Samantha Fuentes, who was shot in both legs that day and had shrapnel behind her eye, led a million-person rendition of “Happy Birthday” for fallen classmate Nicholas Dworet that thundered down Pennsylvania Avenue. Dworet would have turned 18 on Saturday.

The estimated 800,000 protesters who packed a three-quarter-mile section of Pennsylvania Avenue between Capitol Hill and the White House made March for Our Lives, a colossal effort led by Stoneman Douglas students to advocate for gun-control legislation, one of the biggest youth protests in the U.S. since the Vietnam War era — and the largest single-day demonstrationin Washington history. Over 800 sister rallies were held across the country and around the world. From Paris to Tokyo, millions of global citizens showed up Saturday to support the cause.
