Walkouts have been planned by students across the United states due to commence at 10:00 am Wednesday (2:00 PM GMT) as a symbolic tribute to the Florida victims a month after the mass shooting took place at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
Thousands of schools across the country plan to walk out of class not only to mark one month since the mass shooting left 17 dead but also to make a stand and protest gun violence.
The tribute will last 17 minutes as a tribute to the 17 victims at Parkland.
This walkout is just one of many ways that the youth have shown that they are more than capable of standing up for their rights, safety and what they believe in. Through platforms such as social media they are making their presence known and their opinions heard in a world of constant chaos and destruction.
