Thousands of students and teachers began walking out of their classrooms on Wednesday, March 14 as part of the the #Enough! National School Walkout to raise awareness about issues of school safety and the impact of gun violence. The nationwide march, organized by Women’s March Youth Empower, began at 10 a.m. Many marches lasted 17 minutes, to represent each of the victims of the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Our students received a large amount of attention on March 14 with a photo on the New York Times site and an interview on MSNBC. It was well deserved but through it all we remember to pray, and stay humble. Thanks to Alyssa Schukar for capturing the moment above.
