Students slowed by snowstorm hold gun walkouts a day later

ABQ students join national walkout seeking safer schools Students disrupt Walkout Day moment Of silence

Despite those who used the moment for the wrong reasons, Brandy said she was "proud and happy" of all those who truly used the moment for what it was created to do.

"And you know I think a lot of people think that young people don't know what we're talking about, that we're not educated yet, but we're going to be voting soon, a lot of us".

She said she would like to see national leaders try a strategy that she saw work in Australia, when the government banned certain types of weapons and offered a buy-back program for gun owners.

Other South Kingstown schools participated as well.

They've been hand writing on paper hearts messages such as "You are not alone", "We support you", and "You are strong", to send to the high school's 2,972 students, with the goal of brightening their days, if only for a moment.

Drake said almost one-third of the school's students participated in the event.

But it quickly became apparent that many students around the country decided not to go to classes at all and to demonstrate instead. "We have a place for them to go for the 17 minutes (a minute for every Parkland victim). So to see them doing that is just an incredible thing for me", she said.

"I have challenged them to make walking up to people a pattern and continue it throughout the rest of the year, not just today", Edkins said.

The Antioch High School principal planned Thursday's protest.

"People are sick and exhausted of gun violence and the time is now for all of us, together, to stand up to the NRA".

"Our kids sit on both ends of the spectrum, and we have a diverse community when it comes to gun rights and gun control", Principal Warman Hall said.

"I feel like not enough attention has been on the actual people behind the shootings and taking care of the victims", said Pasley, who had a free period during the walkout but rode his bike from home to join his classmates.

Although many students had the full support of their school faculty and even police departments, there were many others who were threatened with suspension, corporal punishment and even arrest if they participated in the walkout. "We should be able to rely on each other. if there's something wrong, we should be able to support each other and be there for each other".

We encourage parents to talk to your child (ren) about how they may be feeling, and the importance of expressing themselves in appropriate ways while at school.

"As the North Kingstown High School Student Union, we are planning a silent walkout on Wednesday, March 14, at 10 a.m.to reject violence in our schools and to stand in solidarity with victims of school shootings, most recently in Parkland, Florida, but also in senseless acts of school violence across the country since Columbine", according to an emailed statement.

At Aztec High School in a rural, gun-friendly part of New Mexico where many enjoy hunting and shooting, students avoided gun politics and opted for a ceremony honoring students killed in shootings - including two who died in a December attack at Aztec.

"We do not have adequate staffing and resources to supervise students who leave the school building to participate in a walkout".
