Students at a high school outside Nashville held a second protest Thursday after their walkout a day earlier was marred by violence. While some lasted for 17 minutes - in honor of the 17 students and staff killed exactly a month prior during a shooting in Parkland, Fla - others protests lasted longer, as some students traveled to Philadelphia School District's Center City headquarters and then gathered at City Hall. Indigo Funk, a student who attended, said, "The turnout was incredible, the entire tri [the central plaza at Ukiah High] was filled with people and everyone was silent". She said a lot of her friends are -registered to vote or planning to register as soon as they are able.

While kids thanked her for spearheading the demonstration, Chrusciel said she was doing what was right. We had students speak in the beginning and at the end, with the 17 minutes of silence being the content of most of the walkout.

These students wanted a reaction by carrying the flag upside down ... and they got it.

Knapp said the students were "absolutely respectable".

"I'm very proud of these students for raising their voices", Strimling told the Munjoy Hill News.

"Unfortunately, some of the sponsors of the National School Walkout advocate for positions that are contrary to the Church's teachings on the sanctity of human life in all of its stages", its letter stated.

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.

According to Maud Bulman, a junior at Maplewood, an estimated 75 students participated in the National School Walkout.

The protest grew out of the student uprising after the Parkland shooting, when students from the Florida high school and others began lobbying their lawmakers to strengthen gun control laws.

"At first, I assumed someone would organize it, and a couple of days before the event, I spread the word through social media and word of mouth", Bulman said.

"I've witnessed so many mass shootings, too many", said Reed. "Everyone was respectful and everyone was quiet, and it was orderly".

According to a press release from the Sugarcreek Police Department, there were no incidents reported during the walkout at Rocky Grove HS. In many cases, teachers have got behind the students who want to take a stand against a society where have been more than 188 shootings at schools and universities since 2000.

About 200 students were given by permission by the school to walk out and march for more than two miles before returning to class. A school shooting can happen anywhere; seeing fellow students around the country be killed by gun violence is heartbreaking.

Ahead of the rallies, Metro Schools clearly outlined the rules for students, which included staying on school property.
