One of the most powerful moments of Saturday's March For Our Lives protest in Washington, D.C. didn't come from a celebrity speaker or a performer -- it came from a student with a simple request to sing her friend "Happy Birthday."
The crowd was moved to tears as Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor Sam Fuentes led thousands in singing the familiar tune for her classmate, Nicholas Dworet, who was one of 17 students killed during February's mass shooting at the Parkland, Florida, high school.
Today, March 24, would have been his 18th birthday.
"I have one more request," Fuentes said while making a speech at the podium. "Today is March 24th, March For Our Lives, but it is also the birthday of Nick Dworet -- someone that was senselessly murdered in front of me. Today is his birthday. I would like to sing altogether 'Happy Birthday.'"
