We need the president of the United States to know that gun violence is not okay, and we need to handle it right now or else there will be no solving it,” one student told ABC News.

USA Today reports:
Thousands of students across the nation walked out of classrooms and into a political firestorm Wednesday, marking one month since the bloody rampage at a Florida high school shocked the world and fueled their dynamic movement demanding an end to gun violence.
Students from about 2,800 schools marked National Walkout Day, many by leaving their classrooms at 10 a.m. to show solidarity for the 17 killed in the attack Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
In Parkland, students gathered on the football field, embraced and chanted, “MSD!” and “We want change!” Rejecting requests from administrators to return to classes, they joined students from a nearby middle school to walk 2 miles to memorials set up for the victims.
