Maybe the rest of us will start to recognize the strength in unity that was so perfectly demonstrated by children walking out of elementary, middle and high school classrooms. "Historically we talk about youth vote, but they don't because you get busy, you go to college", Moore said.
Students in Maryland preparing for a weekend march against gun violence were shaken Wednesday when shots rang out in their high school hallway. Known as March for Our Lives, the demonstrations are part of a movement that has been gained momentum since the tragic mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, last month.
I do appreciate the effort that the walkout organizers made and that they are planning on forming a club here on campus to combat gun violence.
The 17-year-old Parkland student spoke from Twitter's headquarters in NY, during a panel discussion that included Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg and other leaders of the student-fueled #NeverAgain movement.
The day before the protest, Boone was asked, along with other students in one of his classes, to write an essay about the National School Walkout.
Alex Wind, a 17-year-old junior, said he often visits the school's makeshift memorial dedicated to the 17 slain students and teachers.
Parkland students have organized a "March For Our Lives" in Washington, D.C., for March 24, and more nationwide student events are slated for April 20.

"We can't praise them for doing what they've done because that wouldn't have stopped what happened at our school", Corin chimed in.
Another student stated that when incidents like the school shooting happen, no one takes into consideration what is really going on.
In the wake of last week's National Walkout Day, students involved in sanctioned and unsanctioned demonstrations are voicing their opinions on social media.
Most firearms owned by Canadians are non-restricted long guns such as hunting rifles and shotguns.
"It's about time this is happening", she said of the push for gun-reform laws.
While no one was killed, we have all been and remain affected. The Democrat told reporters at Marist College February 22nd that NY laws are far ahead of federal laws. The "Pennridge 225" group posted a video explaining why they walked out.
Canajoharie Central Superintendent Deborah Grimshaw replied to a request for comment by email, which says "The Canajoharie Central School District's staff and students worked together in recent weeks to plan a way for students to safely memorialize and show their support for the victims of the tragedy at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida". The bill, which was signed into law March 9, raised the minimum age to purchase a gun from 18 to 21 and banned the sale or possession of bump fire stocks.
