There are some that say the students are too young or naive to understand the complex nuances of the situation. Congressional aides said discussions were under way about folding the school safety and background check Bills into a government funding Bill that lawmakers want to pass by March 23. "In complete silence, students walked into the gymnasium and observed 17 minutes of silence". In the detention, students sat in silence, arms locked, around a bouquet of flowers while wearing papers with the victims' names. "I really think they wanted to be there.I can't stress enough how thankful I am that I was given this opportunity". The person who posted the video, Kenny MacDonald, claims be a student of New Prague High School, 50 miles southwest of Minneapolis-St.

"Today, students from around the country have demonstrated their activism in many ways", Camhi said. The high school alone reported over 550 students and early checkouts, according to McFall.

The students carried signs with messages such as "Our Blood/Your Hands" and "Never Again" and chanted slogans against the NRA.

"I think it's civic engagement at its best", she said.

One student, Jess Dooley, 16, said that the school in rural western CT is small enough for her to know almost everyone, but that she did not feel comfortable joining the walkout because of comments by gun rights supporters. I learned that if I didn't like the way our leaders were doing things that I could vote or help get someone else elected to do the job.

THS wasn't the only area school that participated in the National School Walkout. "We have the power to inspire change".

The event was called simply #Enough.

This national walkout comes just one month after the mass school shooting in Florida when a 19-year old walked in with an AR-15 and started shooting, killing 17.

At Aztec High School in a rural, gun-friendly part of New Mexico, students aimed to avoid politics and opted for a ceremony honoring students killed in shootings - including two who died in a December attack at Aztec.

Nor can they take away students' rights to be heard. "I'm here to give quiet support" to the administration, he said. "We support kids in every way that we can, and we're going to do that in this case".

Knapp said the students were "absolutely respectable. This is that time".

The national school walkout came one month after a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in south Florida. There were reports of a handful of Long Island districts that treated the walkout as a cut. Enzo Perri is a sophomore at Golden High School, where he opposes the walkout and says he won't take part. The building was silent throughout the exercise, said Superintendent Patricia Sullivan-Kriss.

"This particular march is "March for Our Lives, ' and to me, 'Our" can be absolutely anyone", said Nathan Farnor, a march coordinator and East Tennessee State University student. "It was an awesome phenomenon". The senior at Parkland High School outside Allentown, Pennsylvania, was one of hundreds who walked out of class Wednesday and attended a campus rally dubbed #parklandforparkland.

Dozens of students from Jackson Hole High School and the Jackson Hole Community School also gathered to raise awareness for school safety. How would 8th-grade students, for example, be allowed to participate or to share their thoughts?

That addressed the high schools, but at the lower grade levels ... "At first we only had 40 students that were interested".

"Everybody knows how everyone feels about it", she said. A school shooting can happen anywhere; seeing fellow students around the country be killed by gun violence is heartbreaking.

"We laugh to keep from crying because we go through a lot". The walkout was conducted peacefully and without conflict.
