She's hoping the protest will bring awareness (and, ultimately, change) to an issue that she feels has been long ignored by lawmakers. "I support the walkout, but to say this is not about gun control is 100 percent incorrect".

"It's not a political thing", Adams said.

Call it #MSDWade. Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade paid a surprise visit to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and at least one overjoyed student declared on social media that it was the "Greatest moment of my life".

A school walkout may be in the works in Newton County in March to protest gun violence.

"I remember reading about it and thinking oh my God, this can't be happening already again", said Student Emily Ball.

Los Angeles School Police Association vice president Rodolfo Perez said there are 380 campus officers for the approximately 735,000 students in the LA Unified School District.

"However, an outdoor walk-out on a designated date and appointed time is obviously a safety concern in itself".

"I just wanted to come and say I'm inspired by all of you", Wade said to a hallway full of students.

"I want them to be able to positively and responsibly advocate for themselves and causes they are passionate about", Carlson told The Oklahoman.

"I'm proud of my school and the admissions department for making that decision", Dvorin said. "They're being really fearless, and I want them to continue that, and I do hope it's something he'll see and feel empowered by".

"We're encouraging other actions", she said of the walkout.

"This event was created and organized by students", one student said. "That's our ultimate goal".

"We are walking out for all people who have experienced gun violence, including systemic forms of gun violence that disproportionately impact teens in Black and Brown communities. We're here to stay until we see the policy changes we're demanding".
