Students Walked Out of Classrooms Today to Bring Attention to Gun Reform

Credit: Never Again via the March For Our Lives Facebook

Today, history is being made. Students everywhere walked out of their classrooms at 10am across time zones to protest the rampant gun violence in America and push for changes in gun legislation. To show solidarity for the 17 students killed in the attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School one month ago, kids walked out for 17 minutes. That’s one minute for each life lost. That’s 17 too many.

People all over the US are sharing images of their walkout, and the pictures are incredibly inspiring and heartbreaking. For anyone claiming young people’s opinions don’t matter, that they can’t make a change—today is living proof. These kids are our future, and they are speaking up. Make sure you listen.

We stand with you.

If you’re in high school and want to share your story, idobi.com is looking for guest posts. Send an email to [email protected] with your thoughts about safer gun laws and supporting the #MarchForOurLives movement.
