The Weekend Desk Report

"So many people are expected to head to Washington, D.C., on Saturday morning that the March for Our Lives might turn into a standing room-only rally. That will make the student leaders on stage even more important to the success of the protest. The names of those who will be giving speeches have been released, and notably, the March for Our Lives speakers will all be younger than 20 years old," Joseph D. Lyons writes for Bustle

"They'll be joined by performers - some of whom do qualify as adults - but the activists taking the mic are all 19 or younger. The top headliners are the Marjory Stoneman Douglas students who organized the event in a response to the Valentine's Day shooting at their high school. Theirs are names you'll recognize: Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Cameron Kasky, and more.

"In addition to the MSD students, there will be others from across the country who have been affected by gun violence. A number of them are from Chicago, including Alex King, a senior at Chicago's North Lawndale College Prep High School. His nephew was killed in a drive-by shooting in 2017."


Another speaker from Chicago: Tre Bosley, who leads Michael Daly's report in the Daily Beast:

"Anyone who knew to listen might have heard a murdered musician playing his distinctively pulsing bass from on high as the five buses embarked from Saint Sabina Church in Chicago for the March For Our Lives in Washington at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

"On board the second bus with a draft of a speech he was to give at Saturday's gathering was 19-year-old Trevon 'Tre' Bosley, who had been just eight when his remarkably talented older brother was gunned down in a case of mistaken identity in 2006.

"Terrell Bosley had been a rising star in the Chicago gospel scene nicknamed 'Mr. Music' as he often played at three or more churches on a weekend. He summoned uncommon feeling from his bass guitar, his right hand working the frets and his left the strings, the opposite of the usual for a righty. He would arrive two hours early to rehearse for a service and was taking a break in the parking lot at the Lights of Zion church when shots rang out."


The third Chicago speaker will be Mya Middleton, who just spoke about her experience to Chicago Tonight.

"There are days where I can still see the gun vividly in my face and his dark jeans and his jacket," she said. "I still remember the day, it was very cold, and I still get chills. I can be very hot and all of a sudden my body will just turn frigid and I'll get cold just thinking about it."

"Middleton turned to writing as a coping mechanism, pouring her thoughts and fears from her past onto paper. She's now a member of After Schools Matters' creative writing program and said this outlet has helped her deal with the trauma."


Marches will also take place around the country, of course. Chicago's march kicks off from Union Park at 11 a.m.
