She couldn't march, so she made a 15-piece sign for students to hold
(CNN) Not everyone could join the March for Our Lives, but that didn't mean they weren't rallying behind the movement.
As protesters around the world poured into the streets Saturday, those who couldn't march -- for health reasons or otherwise -- found alternative ways to call for an end to gun violence.
Hartman, of Wichita, Kansas, could not withstand the physical rigors of the march due to health issues. But she sympathizes with the parents of Parkland victims.
"I want to do whatever I can do to support these kids and get stricter gun regulation in place," said Hartman, who lost her daughter to a fatal disease in 2016. "I have a child-sized hole in my heart that, while it may heal around the edges, will always be there.
Like Hartman, Stow of Hillsboro, Oregon, faces physical conditions that limit her mobility. Stow suffers from myalgic encephalomyelitis -- also known as chronic fatigue syndrome.
