Summary "Glimmer of Hope is the official, definitive book from The March for Our Lives founders about the reaction to the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the March for Our Lives, and the ongoing fight to end gun violence in the United States. On February 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was the site of one of the worst mass shootings in American history. Seventeen students and teachers were killed and seventeen more were injured. In the days following the tragedy, a group of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas channeled their feelings of hurt, rage, and sorrow into action, and went on to create one of the largest youth-led movements in global history.
