Under sunny spring skies, Eugene-Springfield's third annual Million Mom March snakes along the Skinner Butte Park bike path on Sunday afternoon. The crowd paraded past picnickers after leaving EWEB Plaza Fountain, where the marchers congregated to listen to speakers, hear music and browse the multitude of information tables. This year's theme was the issue of youth suicide and the role guns play in this public health concern. The March ended at the Owen Rose Garden.
