"Watching others lose a child and knowing what they feel brings it all back. I don't have a problem with responsible gun ownership, but there is nothing responsible about owning an AR-15." #MarchForOurLives #AMJoy #KY04
"If we want teachers to have to ability to make offensive measures, why not non-lethal weapons? It's terrible that we would have to, but if we do, that route should not be firearms." -@TomPrigg2018 #MarchForOurLives #AMJoy

On Friday, Twitter announced that they will be hosting a live streamed event on their platform featuring only pro-gun control students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who will be answering questions from Twitter users.

Activists reporting graffiti depicting poverty on brink of #Iran's calendar new year using a Farsi hashtag translated to "suffering"...

More reason for #IranProtests for #RegimeChange.
This poor man says:
“We’ve been selling oil for 150 yrs & this is our fridge”
Ridicules the regime’s slogans of “Death to America” & “Death to Israel.”
Ironically says “Death to the poor,” “Death to the workers,” “Hats off to the oppressor.”
More reason for #IranProtest.

This man is seen eating weeds...
Millions of people are living in utter poverty in a country sitting on oceans of oil & gas. The mullahs' regime is sending billions abroad to #Syria, #Yemen, #Lebanon, #Iraq & ...
More reason for #IranProtests.
For those unfamiliar with the mullahs' regime:
This mentally disabled mother, & her two children who suffer from down syndrome, saw their house destroyed by municipality authorities in Urmia, NW #Iran.
There is literally no shame in this regime.
More reason for #IranUprising.
For those unfamiliar with the mullahs
Makarem Shirazi, a senior figure in #Iran's regime:
"Purchasing & selling firecrackers/fireworks for the end of the (Iranian calendar) festivities is a sin."
This actually shows how terrified they are of #IranProtests.
These Dem candidates may be long shots to win those red seats.
It's not always about winning.
Sometimes, it's just about changing hearts and minds, even if it's just a few, so next election, they might vote blue. #SaturdayMorning #AMJoy
