Fear. Shock. Sadness. These are just some of the emotions students were experiencing while protesting for gun control to prevent mass shootings from occurring.

Thousands of students across the country walked out of school on Wednesday, March 14th to protest for gun control after the school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida that killed 17 people.

The protests unfolded in major cities across the country. Protests have occurred in New York, Washington, Chicago, Seattle, and Houston.

According to The Washington Post, supporters say the walkouts and demonstrations represent a realization of power and influence by young people raised on social media who have come of age in an era of never-ending wars, highly publicized mass shootings and virulent national politics.

According to ABC News, a huge crowd of chanting students gathered in front of the White House at 10 a.m. and silently sat down with their backs to the White House.

According to New York Times, Teachers at Santa Monica High School guided hundreds of students to the football field. Students were wearing orange t-shirts and #neveragain drawn onto their arms with black eyeliner.

According to USA Today, students at Colombia High School solemnly fled onto the soccer field for a short rally. They released balloons to memorize the parkland victims, along with the 13 people killed at their own school 19 years ago.

Student protests are still occurring today. These students are going to keep protesting until change happens and gun control gets more attention.
