Emma González Stood In Silence On Stage for 6 Minutes

posted by Alaysia Navarro -

Sometimes you can make a greater point by saying nothing and in this case, Parkland shooting survivor Emma González did just that.

Standing on stage for six minutes and 20 seconds, González told the crowd at the March For Your Lives, "In a little over 6 minutes, 17 of our friends were taken from us, 15 were injured and everyone in the Douglas community was forever altered."

 After naming each of the students killed, she stood in silence. At the 4 minute, 25 seconds mark, a timer went off and she resumed. "Since the time that I came out here it has been 6 minutes and 20 seconds. The shooter has ceased shooting and will soon abandon his rifle, blend in with the students as they escape and walk free for an hour before arrest."  

Could González's speech become a turning point for the movement?
