Wednesday, March 14th 2018, marked exactly one month since the Parkland school shooting, one of the deadliest mass murders in modern-day America. Across The States, students from over 2,500 schools countrywide took a stand (or a walk, rather) against gun violence. These students constructed a national walkout to honor the 17 lives lost to gun violence in Parkland, Florida.

The walkout occurred at 10 a.m. in each time zone, and lasted for 17 minutes, dedicating one minute to each life which was tragically lost on the day of the shooting. During the walkout, students from around the country called for stricter gun laws while remembering the souls of the killed.

As expected, many schools were against the walkout, as they feared it would put a large number of students at risk for another attack. Schools that were against the cause, such as schools in Boston and even Upstate New York, called for a snow day on Wednesday to keep the students from walking out, but the students were determined to take a stand, so they came to school anyway.

This modern-American period of protest may turn out to be one of the most distinguishing factors of this generation, as millions of individuals are risking their own safety to communicate peace with their fellow Americans.
