Thousands Of Students Expected To Participate In National School Walkout

Weekend on-air personality BIG REID was at JAMES LOGAN HIGH SCHOOL, where students paid tribute to their peers who lost their lives in the PARKLAND shooting with 170 seconds of silence while staging a die-in.

Two area universities encouraged their communities to participate in Wednesday's National School Walkout by hosting gatherings on campus that honored the 17 victims of the February 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Thousands of students across the country walked out of school Wednesday, March 14, to protest gun violence.

If you search around on YouTube, there are a few videos that are shown that list the 17 victims who were killed in the school shooting and what they had done for the school. Like Wednesday's rallies, students across the country plan to leave class at 10 a.m., observe a moment of silence for gun violence victims and then hold protests.

The incident was captured on a video that was posted on Facebook by Kenny MacDonald, a student at the high school.

At nearby Penn Alexander Elementary school, students demonstrated by forming a peace sign with their bodies.

Emma Taylor-Salinas, a seventh grade student at State College Friends School, writes an affirmation heart for students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

"I hope kids realize this isn't just a walk out and we're done", Maxwell said.

According to the rule, "time, place, and manner" restrictions are put in place as a way "to protect the exercise of students' and employees' free speech rights, [while] taking into consideration the educational objectives and responsibilities of the School District".

Students here at Raytown South High School says they don't want to hear about another school shooting. "I told the students over the PA system after the protest that if they don't do anything after those 17 minutes they aren't making an impact".

At North Park Junior High School, more than 200 students walked outside and assembled near the front steps. "No one wants that", said Mark German, South Williamsport High School history teacher.

"We want specific regulation focusing on bump stocks and the ERPO bill". The Haven students said they had originally wanted to hold their event in the morning, but sixth graders had standardized testing. "We are educators, and our classes are looking at guns laws in NY state and the recent gun legislation singed into law in Florida".

In addition to honoring the victims, participants of the walkout, which was organized by the Women's March youth branch, also hope to convince U.S. lawmakers to introduce stricter gun laws.

Kellerman said the students' efforts made her proud and optimistic about the future.

"We should all stick up for each other and be a family", said Jaheim Clayton, an eighth-grader.
