On Wednesday, March 14, at 10 a.m., students at Woodlake High School joined more than a million students nationwide from more than 3,000 high schools to take part in a 17-minute "Enough" walkout.
Zachary Cruz, the brother of the suspect who killed 17 people on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was arrested Monday for trespassing on the school's property.
"Students around US stage huge walkout against gun violence" (online March 15) fills me with hope and inspiration. Nyack Mayor Don Hammond attended the walkout alongside the students.
The walkout at Harding was organized by the school student group Dare 2 Be Real. As students, we were informed this event was to honor the victims of the shooting in Parkland, Florida.
"These kids talk about how it's an important time for them to protest against gun violence and change in our country, and it's just really exciting for me to hear that", Hammond said.
Numerous students mentioned they have younger siblings who will soon attend the high school and said they want to feel like they will be safe.
Students say it was silent for the entire two hours.
"There's always been people who are going to want to harm us", Ms. Gonzalez said.
Johnson High School, in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood on the East Side, had about 400 students participate in the walkout, according to Johnson Principal Micheal Thompson. He said the students were responsible and followed the parameters established by the district.
