Florida Students Organize

High school students throughout the region reacted with their own events, including hundreds of students at Bowling Green and South Warren high schools who walked out of their schools to remember victims and called for gun reform.

Michitson said that cyber audit, while an expensive endeavor, led to increased training for city employees on how best to protect data and information of residents who do business with the city. "It was completely student organized". The students chose to do this instead of walking out during classroom hours. The Nassau and Suffolk chapters of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America both scheduled additional new member meetings after the Parkland shooting in response to a spike in inquiries. "I am pleased and honored to march with them".

Hebert, whose cousins go to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, wondered if they would escape a shooting that ultimately killed 17 people.

"We have drills for those, and now there's drills for shootings", she says.

"Some parents may say, 'If you're in trouble, run to the police, '" she said. "I wanted to get as many opinions as possible".

Students say that this is only the beginning, and they will continue searching for ways to bring awareness.

"The thing that bugs me the most is that black people have been protesting against gun violence for years and people have just pushed them aside", Mann said.

Michael Sellen believes that the student walkouts were "misplaced" because they were incited by the "liberal" media to walk out of school and speak up on school violence. The more than 100 Sunny Brae students weren't alone. I took safety classes, went hunting every year, and I thoroughly appreciate firearms and their history.

Frankfort High School junior Caya Hebert was terrified when news broke about a school shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month. Passing drivers and neighbors waved or thanked the students.

"OTHS District 203 supports a student's Constitutional right to protest and to engage in peaceful assembly", Benway wrote.

"We may not all be able to vote yet, but we can still all make a change", Handwerker said. This came only a couple weeks after the Sutherland Springs church shooting, which killed 25 people, and only a month after the Vegas shooting in which 58 people were shot and killed.

Another student said she and her friends participated in the walkout because "it's our duty to make change in our society today".

Thompson said he was proud of the students and said he thinks an event like this is important for students to see how they are a part of a larger picture. Attendees may register at the Lutheran Campus Center, 451 Huff Street, Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m.to 5:30 p.m. T-shirts are also available for an additional cost of $5 for students and $10 for adults.

"I'm just here for the kids", Dent said.

He said he was there to show support. "She was very motivated to take part in this with the thought that maybe if she stands up for herself, it will keep her and her classmates safe".

"It was lovely, I was so impressed", she said.

While gun tragedies could happen anywhere, having 750,000 more guns in schools puts our kids at greater risk.

"They were loud but sensible", he said. Forty-six of the 225 students served their detention on Saturday at the Bucks County high school. When it was law enforcement pulling the trigger, black people were almost twice as likely as white people to be killed. "We deserve to feel safe at our schools".

"All five of our schools had individual students who participated", he said.

"Every student is impacted".
