Hey Femm Readers. As most of you may know, today was the day of March For Our Lives rallies across the nation to spread attention of demanding gun control reform. This march blossomed after the latest mass shooting last month at a Florida high school.

Several sports idols used their platform to spread awareness themselves. Legendary coach of the Warriors, Steve Kerr, tweeted, "Reminder today to get out and march! Thank you to the young generation for inspiring all of us that change will only happen through our own will. Register to vote and demand common sense gun laws from any and all potential elected officials! Democracy will win!"
Sports figure Dwyane Wade also posted on Instagram with the caption, "#marchforourlives IAM proud of each individual thats apart of this movement towards change..."
Professional/Collegiate athletes and figures get ridiculed often for how they choose to use their platform, but today, it was used to get justice for the people and families directly effected with lack of gun control laws. A positive impact was made today on behalf of the sports world.
