Pace students walk out to honor school shooting victims

On the evening before the national walkout, Colorado gun control activists rallied near Columbine High School, calling for an end to gun violence.

In March, many of our school sites had students who organized walkouts and walk-ins, and those demonstrations occurred in a peaceful and respectful manner.

Walkouts happened all across the country as students observe the anniversary of the Columbine shooting.

As students demonstrated in South Florida, a Central Florida high school was on lockdown as a student was shot in the ankle on campus.

(Clarinda) - Seven Clarinda High School students walked out Friday morning to silently support gun control.

Carrying signs and shouting, the students left their school at 321 E. Third St., marched across the Fahy Bridge then gathered Payrow Plaza at the City Hall complex. Rassida Diallo of Multicultural Academy Charter School added, "My family members or anyone I know haven't been victims of gun violence, but if I don't do something, nobody else is going to do something".

"We didnt want them to be the only ones representing Plant", said sophomore Ernie Sampera, 16, who was part of the group at the flagpole.


"Some of us weren't even born yet and we still haven't had the changes we have asked for time and time again", Murdock said. Others will stay at school to discuss gun violence.

Students gave thirteen seconds of silence for each of the lives lost at the Columbine shooting. This is ongoing throughout the afternoon, so students can participate during lunch or after school. "You've already made your voices known".

In New Hampshire, several hundred students directed their anger at the state Senate's rejection of a bill in March that would have allowed local communities to ban guns in schools.

FOX4 spoke with one student who helped plan the rally at Shawnee Mission North.

In Littleton, some survivors of the Columbine shooting planned to join with Parkland survivors for a vigil and rally Thursday evening. Instead, students were called to participate in a day of service.

"April has always been a time to respectfully remember our loss and also support efforts to make our communities a better place", the letter read.
