One month ago, hundreds of students ran for their lives from the hallways and classrooms of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, FL. 17 students and staff had been shot to death, by a armed gunman.

On Wednesday, March 14, 2018, over 150 students at Holman Middle School walked out of their classrooms to a peaceful protest, to demand stricter gun laws all over the United States. The 17-minute walkout — one minute for each of the 17 people killed at the high school, occurred at around 10 a.m.

One 7th, and one 8th grade girl, voiced their opinion about how enough is enough. After the speech, the students listened to “Angle” by Sarah McLachlan. They then sat in 17 seconds of silence, in remembrance of the 17 victims that were killed in the shooting. After the peaceful protest, the students returned back to class.
