schools across the United States participated in a National School Walk-out,
a peaceful demonstration in support of ‘gun control’, especially in public
school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School
Parkland, Florida, occurred on Valentines Day, February 14th. The National
School/Student Walk-out movement has been generated by students during the
aftermath of the Parkland, High School
massacre; the cause is to protest against gun violence.
In Sacramento, California protesting students
marched out of elementary, middle and high school classrooms in solidarity with
others, who are demanding change in gun laws.
Today, the BVUSD Schools participating were the Big Bear Middle School and Big Bear
High School. Specifically, at 10:00 A.M., in each time-zone, 17 Minutes in
commemoration of the 17 Florida people that died in the Valentines Day
massacre. Many schools also set 17 empty chairs to symbolize those lives lost. Students voluntarily had the opportunity to
express their own thoughts.
