James Shaw Jr., the hero who wrestled the gun from the hands of the Nashville Waffle House shooter, met up with the survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida today to compare notes and take some awesome photos together.
Shaw tweeted out a shot of himself and one of the more recognizable faces from the group of activists at the school, Emma González, earlier today.
Now another of the Parkland teens who’s been among the most high profile of the survivors in their fight against gun violence, David Hogg, has tweeted out his own shot of himself with the brave young man who saved countless lives with his daring disarmament.
The smiles that the pair sport mirror the optimism of the message Hogg appended to the photo, acknowledging the difficulties of the struggle ahead but predicting an ultimate victory in the fight to enact sensible gun regulations such as an assault weapons ban and the closing of background check loopholes.
The solidarity between the survivors of two separate tragedies is an inspiring thing to witness and demonstrates how unity can make optimism about the future of the fight against gun violence in schools and every other venue seem the proper attitude.
