The week began with hundreds of thousands of students, teachers and activists participating in the "March for Our Lives" in Washington, D.C. and across the world. The student-led gun control movement comes after the shooting tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida last month. Student survivor Emma González held a powerful six minutes of silence in honor of the victims. MLK’s granddaughter also shared her dream that "enough is enough."
Other major headlines of the week included President Trump firing David Shulkin as Veterans Affairs Secretary, the firing of an officer involved in the shooting death of Alton Sterling and the death of Linda Brown, the young girl at the center of the 1954 school segregation case.
