There are 7000 pairs of shoes outside the Capitol. Here's why

The display comes just one day ahead of a planned nationwide school walkout honoring the victims of last month's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

According to the event organizers, 7,000 pairs of shoes (14,000 shoes in total) were used in the display, symbolizing that between 14 December 2012 and 13 March 2018, 7,000 children were killed by guns in the United States. The Capitol is the home of the U.S. Congress.

The Parkland shooting was the deadliest school shooting since 26 were killed in 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in CT. @Avaaz says it represents the number of children who died bc of gun violence.

Donors to the shoe monument include actresses Susan Sarandon and Bette Midler, and talk show host Chelsea Handler.

This dramatic and influential organization is only five years old.

Capcom is bringing Devil Hunter Dante to Monster Hunter
Another event quest is expected to add new palico armor that makes players' furry friends look like Mega Man. Monster Hunter World will receive Devil May Cry-themed armour and weapons in an upcoming event quest.

According to a press release issued in advance of the event, the figure of 7,000 came from the Centers for Disease Control.

Some schools will allow students to participate and have encouraged them to exercise their free speech rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Calling for the shooting to be a tipping point for gun legislation, George and Amal Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and companies such as Gucci have donated as much as $500,000 to support the March For Our Lives effort, which is being organized by the nonprofit Everytown for Gun Safety.

The silent protest is meant to spur lawmakers to take action on gun reforms.
