A recent school massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida a month ago took 17 lives. "If they could look at the situation today at Antioch High School, that they would be okay with violent behavior", said Reed. "And for me, it became very real, and very quick and very sudden".

In almost 3,000 other planned protests nationwide, students from the elementary to college level took up the call in a variety of ways. She said it was being sponsored by Wyoming Rising-Northwest.

Students at North Bend who participated were given a card during the walk-out that read "Congratulations taking part in a walk-out, you have taken a step toward developing post-conventional ethical reasoning capabilities, an attribute viewed as most favorable by higher education". There's a big difference here.

Almost 300 Dallas High School students left classes and walked out to the football stadium where 17 red roses were laid in the snow.

Wellington police had extra officers on hand at the school, but Shelton said there were no threats. Almost 100 students and faculty could be seen near the structure Wednesday, with some holding posters with pictures and names of the 17 Parkland shooting victims.

About two dozen students did stay outside.

The United States has more than 30,000 gun-related deaths annually and following the shooting Stoneman Douglas students have launched one of the most concerted movements for gun control seen in years.

"No more thoughts! No more prayers!"

In New York City, they chanted, "Enough is enough!"

Several students spoke to a crowd of their schoolmates, while around the perimeter of the school, secured by teachers, and police officials, many adults lent their support.

"We want something - something is better than nothing", said Trenten Peacock, a member of the school's left-leaning group called Falcons for Progress, who helped organize the March 14 walkout. "If they know that we don't care if we get in trouble, they'll maybe finally believe we're serious about trying to make change".

Exchanging a walkout with words, students say, was a way for them to show support without any other agenda. "They're people with stories and lives and families and friends", said Daphne Maki, a senior at Houghton High School.

Some issued specific demands for lawmakers, including mandatory background checks for all gun sales and a ban on assault weapons like the one used in the Florida bloodbath.

After a couple of minutes, however, those gathered at the front of the building started making their way to where the rest of the students were heading: Wilkins Stadium. "I think they're the future".

"So what can be shared, need to be shared", Principal Ted Moccia said.

Reed said, "It's unacceptable and it's really disappointing that all of these kids from across the nation are walking out and being vocal about what's going on and the politicians are saying, 'Hey listen kids".

Following the discussion, Principal Moccia was already looking to change school policy. "Because it's national lobby day of course, but we want to get this bill passed now", said Amalia Hochman, a student protest organizer. He also wants to create an anonymous tip line, so students can feel comfortable speaking up if they see something they're concerned about.

Students without a letter and parental approval were not allowed to participate in the walkout.
