The Day The Earth Stood Still depicts the arrival of an alien dignitary, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), who has come to earth with his deadly robot, Gort (Lock Martin), to deliver the message that earthlings must stop warring among themselves–or else. After being shot at by military guards, Klaatu is brought to a Washington, D.C. hospital, where he begs a sympathetic but frank Major White (Robert Osterloh) to gather all the world's leaders so he can tell them more specifically what he has come to warn them about. Losing patience, Klaatu slips into the human world, adapting a false identity and living at a boarding house where he meets a smart woman with a conscience and her inquisitive son. Both mother and son soon find themselves embroiled in the complex mystery of Klaatu, his message and the government's witch hunt for the alien.  Seen by many as a political, religious and humanitarian effort, the film is based on Harry Bates’ story, "Farewell to the Master."

Parkland shooting survivor and activist Emma Gonzalez delivered a short but potently resounding speech at today’s (March 24) March For Our Lives rally in Washington, DC. After naming each of the 17 victims of the shooting, she stood in silence for several minutes, only continuing after the amount of time the gunman was shooting passed. 

While naming her peers, Gonzalez listed the things they would never get to do again. Then she fell silent.

“Since the time that I came out here, it has been six minutes and 20 seconds,” said Gonzalez after her powerful moment of silence. “The shooter has ceased shooting and will soon abandon his rifle, blend in with the students as they escape, and walk free for an hour before arrest. Fight for your lives, before it’s someone else’s job”

We stand with Emma, now and forever.

Watch the surely to become iconic speech below.
