Meet Andrew and Hunter Pollack. Andrew lost his 18-year-old daughter, Meadow, when a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, and Hunter lost his beloved sister.
Hunter prepared a speech for the “March for Our Lives” rally in Washington on Saturday, calling for increased school safety to prevent the next school massacre. But according to Benny Johnson, a reporter for the Daily Caller, event organizers cut Hunter from the speaker lineup at the last minute.
Maybe he was cut because his family has not advocated for gun control. After all, Saturday’s event was a gun control rally. Whatever the reason, Hunter was robbed of the opportunity to have a voice and honor his sister’s life.
Thankfully, Hunter shared some of his prepared remarks in a video on Twitter.
Meet Andrew Pollack & his son Hunter. Andrew’s daughter, Meadow, was murdered in Parkland. Hunter was disinvited to speak today at the March For Our Lives. He prepared a beautiful speech about securing our schools.
