David Hogg one of the student survivors of a mass shooting on February 14, 2018 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, appeared in a video promoting the March For Our Lives movement happening on March 24th.
In an interesting twist, the video was shot in an overly dramatic style usually seen in NRA propaganda. Hogg is seen with a dark backdrop speaking directly to the camera while his message is interspersed with news clips. Not only does the high-school student get his message across, he also managed to throw some shade by mocking the NRA and spokesperson, Dana Loesch.
In the video, Hogg asked the following questions:
What if we all voted and said this was not okay? What if we stood up as Americans and fought for our freedom and our children’s lives? My name is David Hogg and I stand with the #NeverAgain movement.
The March For Out Lives movement and the hashtag #WhatIf is gaining momentum on social media. There has also been a dramatic increase in young people registering to vote.

"In an ideal world, the 20 first graders and kindergartners who died at Sandy Hook would be in middle school... The 17 victims from Stoneman Douglas would probably be eating lunch right now," student says at #NationalWalkoutDay rally https://t.co/9UbJD8FATr pic.twitter.com/77EQYqxmkw— CBS News (@CBSNews) March 14, 2018
