AceShowbiz - Millie Bobby Brown might not join the March for Our Lives on Saturday, March 23, due to attending the 2018 Kids's Choice Awards, but she had her own way to support the movement. At the award-giving event, which was held on the same day that the march took place, the "Stranger Things" breakout star paid tribute to the victims of Parkland School Shooting in her powerful speech.
While accepting the Kids' Choice Award for favorite TV actress for her stunning performance as Eleven on the Netflix series, Millie addressed the March for Our Lives. "Thank you so much for this award, and to Nickelodeon for bringing us all together. As we saw a moment ago, the March for Our Lives demonstrations that took place all over the world today have inspired me and impacted us all in one way or another," Millie opened her speech.
She continued, "I'm fortunate to be here tonight to receive an award as an actor. I'm so very grateful, and I appreciate the love and support of my fans, and the opportunity that our show, 'Stranger Things', has created for me."
"But more than anything, I get to be up here, and I'm privileged to have a voice that can be heard, one that I can use to hopefully make a positive difference and help influence change," the 14-year-old actress added. "OK, so there's an amazing support, love and kindness in this room right now, and I want to encourage everyone to embrace it and to pass it on."
"For the angels among us, your spirit lives on. This is for you," Brown concluded her speech, referring to the back of her ensemble which featured the names of the victims of the Parkland, Florida school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School back in February.
For the Los Angeles event, Millie sported a custom-made Calvin Klein denim top. Written in white, the back of her ensemble had seventeen people who died in the massacre.
The actress shared on Twitter a photo which gave a better look at the back of her outfit. Along with the photo, she wrote in the caption, "Thank you to all the fans who voted for me and for Stranger Things at Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards today. A big (pray emoji) also to my friends at Calvin Klein for being such a champion of important causes and efforts to create positivity in this world. #marchforourlives #neveragain."
