Tenn. high school holds second protest after walkout marred by violence

In Hartland, more than 100 students also participated in 17 minutes of silence while several dozen Fowlerville students held a similar moment in the high school gym. The majority of students took part, said Annette Powers, the school's director of communications and marketing.

Hundreds of students at Scotland High School, emboldened by a growing protest movement over gun violence, stood up and walked out of school as part of a nationwide demonstration on Wednesday, one month after a gunman killed 17 people at a high school in Florida.

Students outside Trump Tower in Manhattan chant "Hey, Hey, NRA, how many kids did you kill today".

Many students defied the warnings, including over two dozen at Lindenhurst High School in NY, who were at first suspended, but then had their punishment reduced to detentions, according to a senior and the school superintendent.

Almost 90% of those students sat outside their classroom for 17 minutes as they remember the 17 victims that lost their lives during the tragic Parkland shooting. A series of student speakers filled the next 17 minutes, often garnering the cheers and applause of their peers. "She is a very well informed 11-year-old, and she asks tough questions". The bill's sponsor says she stands with the students.

She said she hopes lawmakers will take steps to ensure tragedies like mass shootings never happen again.

In a wave of protests one historian called the largest of its kind in American history, tens of thousands of students walked out of their classrooms Wednesday to demand action on gun violence and school safety.

"He's twitching. There's blood all over", she said.

"We're all delivering the same message", he said.

Despite those who used the moment for the wrong reasons, Brandy said she was "proud and happy" of all those who truly used the moment for what it was created to do. "We're going to have the names and the faces of the victims on a screen, and we have a health care professional talking about resources and if you have a friend who might need some support". "So to see them doing that is just an incredible thing for me", she said.

"I babysit for kids that go to that school", Hughes says. "Seventeen people lost their lives in Parkland, but it's every single individual who has something to give", Hand said. "We don't want guns in our schools, full stop, regardless of who's holding them". "It happens too many times", Justin said. "I'm exhausted of it".

At Curtis Corner Middle School in South Kingstown, state Reps.

Celebrities, students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and other Twitter users voiced their support for the teenager.

At Narragansett High School, plans were made for an assembly in the auditorium.

The high number of absences were allegedly due to social media threats that began circulating on Tuesday.

Bonaventure University students, faculty and staff participated in a program organized by students Haylei John, a senior from Salamanca; Kaylyn Foody, a freshman from Pittsburgh, Pa.; and Jessica Cason, a graduate student from Buffalo. We look forward to welcoming students back tomorrow for a great day of teaching and learning. No incidents were reported there, either.

However, in order to participate, students were required to write a letter to their congressman voicing their concerns about school safety.
