The March for Our Lives event was about the youth Saturday and hundreds of adults were there to support them.
More than 800 marches were held across the country and some might say it was a continuation of the student walkouts last week in protest of the 17 people killed Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
Isabel Reyes of Vallejo still grieves for her son, Eric Reyes, who died in February 2016 because of gun violence. She formed the Eric Reyes Foundation in his memory and helped sponsor the march.
“Youth are killing youth,” she said. “We have a lot of gun violence in the community.”
