David Hogg, five years after Parkland

On Feb. 14, 2018, a gunman murdered 17 people and wounded 17 others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. David Hogg, who was 17 at the time, survived and helped to create March for Our Lives, which promotes gun control legislation. Now a senior at Harvard, Hogg tells correspondent Rita Braver what he has been through the past five years, including death threats against himself and his family; what his group has accomplished; and what it means for young people having to become leaders as advocates for change.


Parkland school shooting survivor speaks out

David Hogg, a co-founder of March for our Lives, became an activist for stronger gun laws after surviving the 2018 shooting that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. "It's not easy, but the reality is Americans have to stand up and do the jobs of our politicians," he told CBS News after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. "Focus on what we can agree on. That's why I think this time can be different."
