Here are the student responses to the reflection question, "The student-led #MarchForOurLives movement is trying to stop gun violence in our communities and schools. What about the gun violence of war? Are there similar ways to stop the spread of war?"
-"This is a different issue, where it's not regulating who can own weapons but rather beginning conflicts with other countries."
-"Many ways -- one is to pay for third world countries to stop civil war."
-"Perhaps the best way to combat violence is to avoid it altogether. What we need is a commander-in-chief whose goal is peace and containing violence overseas."
-"I think that protesting in an effort to stop war can work. It wasn't 100% effective when it was present in the 50's/60's, but I think looking there is certainly a good place to start."
-"Diplomatic accords that benefit both parties equally is the best way to ensure peace and cooperation and is the best road to success."
-"Pay attention on who you give guns to."
-"War is often started by disagreements or truce breaking which leads to gun violence. It's possible to stop but difficult."
-"We can foster internationalism to become better connected."
-"I believe that there are other ways to solve political problems on Earth, and on the other hand there is a possible way to change the spread of war."
-"I think political leaders often start wars too quickly without trying other solutions first. Lots of people get killed in wars that start from small things that could have been solved without killing."
-"Restrict who gets guns."
-"Gun reform laws."
-"Stricter background checks when selling guns."
