The shoes were placed by the global activist group, Avaaz, to urge Congress to enact gun control laws after 17 people were killed on February 14 at a high school in Parkland, Fla., according to Buzzfeed.

Celebrities were also among those who donated shoes, ABC reported.

"I'll travel to D.C. literally wearing my son Daniel's shoes, the ones he wore the day he died at Columbine", said Tom Mauser.

From 8:30 am to 2 pm, the shoes were displayed on the southeast lawn in the hope of sending a clear message to Congress: Reform gun control legislation or more children will be killed by gun violence.

"The culture on guns is shifting, and we can all feel it", she said.

Sam Bradford signs with Cardinals
He spent the better part of two months on injured reserve before being activated as Case Keenum's backup during the postseason. But Cousins is going to, in all likelihood, sign with the Vikings on a three-year deal worth a reported $84 million .

The event was planned by Avaaz, an global advocacy group, that has done similar events before. Her daughter survived the shooting.

"About five families came that were victims of gun violence", says Oscar Soria, senior campaigner with the protest group.

The shoe demonstration comes a day before a massive nationwide walkout by students to demand tougher laws on gun ownership, part of a campaign that emerged after the killing of 17 students and staff at a Florida high school a month ago.

Tuesday's shoe memorial is reminiscent of a monument on the Danube River near the Hungarian Parliament in Budapest commemorating thousands of people, including Jews, killed by fascists in the 1940s. Called March for our Lives, the event is a collaboration between the student survivors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Everytown for Gun Safety.
