I love you, Atlanta. Getting to march alongside thousands of students, teachers, parents, and other concerned citizens was so meaningful. However, the fight for change doesn’t stop with a march, so please PLEASE vote!! Do research on your political candidates and then go from there! We can make a difference. #marchforourlivesatl #kidsnotguns
