Seventeen Minutes

High school students across America are planning to walk out of school today at 10 a.m. for seventeen minutes to mark the one-month anniversary of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and to demand changes in gun laws.

Some school districts may take action against the students; some may encourage them.  The ACLU has a primer on the rights and consequences for students for taking such action.  So noted, but a number of schools in Miami-Dade County are planning to participate.

One bark on “Seventeen Minutes

  1. The future is them. A powerful photo of hundreds of empty shoes on the lawn of the Capitol symbolizing the kids lost to gun deaths in the last few years. Who can ignore this?
