Students challenged to 'walk in' to kindness to honor Parkland victims

Students challenged to 'walk in' to kindness to honor Parkland victims

The long term takeaway might be how this bad tragedy leaves a lasting imprint of positive change on the community.

Lorain Schools CEO David Hardy attended the walkout and the rally, saying he felt it was important for students to feel supported throughout the events of the day.

From Chicago to Charlotte to New York City to D.C.to Maine-where 200 students and supporters showed up for the walkout at one high school despite an enormous blizzard-hundreds of thousands of students and teachers walked out of their classrooms at 10 am local time for 17 minutes, in memory of the 17 victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting.

Sheriff Scott Israel said last month that officer Scot Peterson stood outside the building and did "nothing" while a shooter opened fire on students and teachers.

Cruz's violence lasted about 6 minutes.

"It's not like they're standing where a lot of people see them", she said.

"Part of that was the speed at which they were taking their calls and then how long it would take them to do their follow-up after they took the call", he said.

Nikolas Cruz appears in court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on March 14, 2018. Participation in the student-run event was strictly optional and students who preferred not to participate stayed inside of the building.

A month ago, on February 14, those same Douglas students were running for their lives across that same football field as Nicholas Cruz fired round after round from his AR-15 rifle, killing 14 students, two teachers, and the school's athletic director. In the middle of the names, the students wrote messages: "Never again".

Re-3 School District Superintendent Ron Echols offered some praise for the students at FMHS and FMMS for how they conducted themselves during the walkout, as well as recognizing LHS for the discussions the school held about it. A third national protest is planned for April 20, the 19th anniversary of the Columbine killings in Colorado that kicked off the trend of mass shootings at American schools.

One memorable exchange came from Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jamie died in the attack.

"They won't be forgotten for what they did", Lund said of the students and staff who were killed in Parkland. Marco Rubio at the town hall.

The Women's March organizers described their impetus for the walkout this way: "We are living in an age where young people like us do not feel safe in our schools".

We learned that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and BSO received tips about Cruz's behavior in the past few months yet the tips went nowhere.

Deputies normally pay for their own rifles, but the Sheriff's Office is allocating funds so that all weapons will be a standard size that can easily fit into a carrying bag, BSO spokeswoman Keyla Concepción said.

Peterson resigned from his position shortly after the shooting.

"Broward, do not approach the 12 or 1300 building".

Some schools gave students a free pass to leave the building for the protest on Wednesday.

The NRA wasted no time in acting against Florida's new gun control law.

Cruz is accused of carrying out the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that also wounded 17 other people.

The bill also added a controversial voluntary program to arm teachers, and the NRA filed a lawsuit over the bill showing just how challenging true change may be.

His attorney reiterated that Cruz would plead guilty if prosecutors waived the death penalty, which they refused to do.

A chance to share the grief of their neighbors and friends and pray for those whose lives were forever changed.
