Students disrupt Walkout Day moment Of silence

"I'm just, like, never gonna be the same person ever again". They railed against the National Rifle Association and the politicians who support it. They don't feel enough is being done to protect them. The Florida shooter was Nikolas Cruz [VIDEO], a 19-year old that was earlier expelled from the high school. I know that this is a complex issue, and we must all work together.

Community members join students Wednesday on a corner near North Bend High School during a national student walkout to recognize the latest victims of a school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Some students circled around the american flag in the front of the school.

"I've witnessed so many mass shootings, too many", said Reed. "We've had advisory sessions on what to do in a crisis and what to do to prevent crisis", North Bend High School Principal Bill Lucero said. "I think their message was consistent, that they wanted to support the victims of Parkland".

An updated tally of gun violence-related deaths in the United States shows that 2,883 people have already died this year and another 4,909 injured, according to Gun Violence Archive (GVA), a widely quoted non-profit organization tracking gun violence incidents in the United States. The family friend disputes that, saying it was a student council leader who stopped the fight. "A protest is we're supposed to walkout", another student said.

President Donald Trump this week did a full retreat from his promise of comprehensive gun law reform, offering instead a piecemeal approach built around the alarming idea of arming teachers.

No one really has the magic answer that will make the students and teachers who died on February 14 the last ones to lose their lives so horrifically, so senselessly.

Several students made and held signs during the event. "Time for action!" they chanted.

"I think it contributes to the significant impact we students have had on the gun control debate".

Middle school and high school students at Kohelet Yeshiva, an Orthodox day school in Merion Station, Pennsylvania, attended an assembly at 10 a.m.to observe 17 seconds of silence in honor of the Stoneman Douglas victims. "I don't know why people would do it, but it's really upsetting", North Bend High School student Jonathan Flood said.

"Every one of these individuals could have died that day. Stricter gun laws have overwhelming support in this country, and the overwhelming numbers at the walkouts provided a visual for that".

A new, big study by the Urban Institute this week shed light on how students get to school and how long it takes for them to arrive. "Probably not", David McLennan, professor of political science at Meredith College said.

Many students in ME were prevented from participating in a national school walkout to protest gun violence by a force more powerful than any principal: nature. "That's why it's important to give them a safe way to report potential problems-whether it be something they overheard in the hallway, or a post on social media".

Wednesday's coordinated protests were loosely organized by Empower, the youth wing of the Women's March, which brought thousands to Washington past year.

Nearly three out of four teachers oppose the idea of being armed at school, according to a new Gallup poll.

While one from her elementary school student informed her students were "doing a walkout", the one from her high school junior was asking for permission. Moccia says he wants to open up communication at the school through weekly lunch forums where students can sit down with administrators.

After the event, Ashley said she wrote the poem after seeing the videos of the Parkland shooting and said she hoped her poem reached her classmates.

She said the district respected their First Amendment right, but added the expressing that right came with consequences.
