Students gearing up for another walk out over gun violence

Whitewater Middle School

The Columbine High School massacre was a shooting in Colorado, that also involved explosives, and occurred on April 20th, 1999. "I'm lucky to go to a school that the principal is willing to give the students a voice".

More than 60 survivors of the February 14 in Florida are in Colorado.

On April 20, there will be a nationwide high school student walkout against gun violence and for student safety. "That's obviously their right, and they're going to do it after school at the Capitol", Petley said. We demand action and we demand it now!

Students in the Washoe County School District are gearing up for another round of protests against gun violence.

"It's more of a learning thing than a debate", Schonkaes said. She and her team have more than 2,500 walkouts across the country registered through their website.

The survey found that 86 percent of teens said preventing people with mental health illnesses from purchasing a gun would be effective at preventing school shootings, the same percentage who said strengthening mental illness screenings would be effective.

Students in Waukee, Urbandale and Johnston have also planned walkouts for Friday.

And on March 24, students from across the country gathered in Washington, D.C., and hundreds of other sites to "March For Our Lives".

She got some family friends to donate a bus to bring those without a vehicle. "And that took me through 2012", he said.

At Stoneman Douglas, Feldman had attended plays and summer camps.

"Most major media will pretend it didn't happen", she added.

"Upon hearing of the tragedy in Parkland and witnessing the incredible strength of the survivors, we were inspired to continue what they started in our own communities", said one student, who's a member of SOYA and a junior at Worthington Kilbourne High School.

"We are advocating for safer schools and since we have mentioned it, there is now a school safety committee at Scott County High School", Coleman said in a Twitter message.

A majority of American teens (57%) say they are very or somewhat anxious about the possibility of a shooting happening at their school, and most parents of teens share that concern (63%), according to new Pew Research Center surveys of teens ages 13 to 17 and parents with children in the same age range.

Mt. Lebanon students will have the option to leave class for a 90-minute event on the football field that will include performances, student speakers and presentations about school shooting statistics. Our Principals have taken a proactive approach and have worked with student leaders to develop alternative activities to express their support for the victims of school violence. "Eighteen and older is the way we do it, in this country", said Dr. Perry. "If you want to help us honor Columbine, stay in class and do these acts of kindness".

It is not clear how many students plan to participate. "But we expected it and we'll just keep pushing on".

"Change happens through patience and this fight does not stop after April 20", Murdock says.
