Hundreds of people of all ages came together in Belfast March 24 for the March for Our Lives march in solidarity on the issues of greater school safety and a need for stricter gun laws.

This event and those in cities and towns across the country were organized by survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Fla., with local support.

Holding signs that read "Thanks Students – Now Vote – Enough!," "Not One More," "Thoughts, Prayers, Action" "Kids Not Guns," and "Protect Our Children, Not Guns," local demonstrators began their march at 3 p.m. in front of the Belfast post office.

With students leading the way, the march headed down Main Street and ended at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Miller Street. Hundreds filled the street to hear speakers, talking from atop a picnic table on the side of the church.

Many echoed the sentiment of changing the future with votes by electing candidates for gun reform.
