On Wednesday, February 14th, a high school shooting took place in Parkland, Florida. The deadly event left 17 dead and many others wounded.

Being only two months into the year, this was the eighth school shooting. A big spark of responses and reactions resulted from the shooting. A teacher-student walkout has been called for across the country on March 14th. According to RayCom News Network, organizers from the Women’s March had the idea for this walkout.

The shooting at Majority Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, also angered people on social media. Much of the media is from other students and parents showing their grief over the violence. Many rallies have taken place, including events in Ft. Lauderdale and St. Petersburg. The protesters were demanding for stricter gun laws and safer school campuses. They were hoping for community and government action in response to the shooting, as the suspected shooter from was able to legally purchase a semi-automatic rifle, despite being previously been expelled from the school and showing mental health concerns.

Hundreds of students from nearby schools gathered with those from Stoneman Douglas High and held a rally. The rally was in protest of nothing being done by the state lawmakers in response to the shooting. There were signs that said “#NeverAgain” and “Shame on you”.

A student from a high school near Cleveland organized a walkout for her school in protest of the gun laws and show their support for those in Parkland, Florida. The student, Rebecca Parch said “These gun deaths are happening like everyday, and we’re not doing anything to change it. It’s ridiculous.”

There has also been talk on social media of another walkout planned on April 20th, the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting.

While parents and students are grieving over their losses, the state government has yet to do anything to change what happened in Parkland, Florida.
