Flagstaff High School To Host Events Regarding Safety In Our Schools

There was heightened security on Wednesday as the teenagers returned to campus

The national debate over school safety and gun control has been reignited since the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killed 17 people.

Many are planning to demonstrate again in the future, although not necessarily during the school day, as they will receive unexcused absences for leaving class. If teachers want to march, they must take a personal leave.

Parkland student journalists are telling their stories.

"This would be obviously only for people who were very adept at handling a gun, and it would be, it's called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them". In many ways, they are not so different from the woman whose name their school bears. At Stoneman Douglas, that's now journalism 101. I would like to believe that those arguing for arming our teachers are coming from a genuine place of trying to protect children. Since then, student activists have been an nearly constant presence.

Students at more than a dozen ME schools announced they will participate in the protest.

Alek Pacocha, 17, a junior who was in the vicinity of the shooting, said, "It's not going to happen again".

"Carmen's story really spoke to me", Kannen said. "She would get in the face of everybody". From the Miami Herald, where she worked as a writer for years, to the national spotlight she earned as one of the nation's eminent environmentalists, Douglas was never one to shy away from a fight she believed was worth fighting, even when that meant going toe-to-toe with USA presidents.

In an email to The Associated Press, National Park Service spokesman Mike Litterst clarified that the "March For Our Lives" organizers have since informed officials that they will hold their rally on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 3rd and 12th streets. I knew I wanted to have my voice heard.

There are many ways to describe what González exhibited in that glorious moment, as in so many others since the shooting.

When states have tried to arm school staff in the past, the attempts have not worked to keep students safer. The degree of intelligence and fortitude needed to overcome that idiotic stereotype was part of what made Marjory Stoneman Douglas such an incredible figure. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High students quickly slammed Capitol Hill's stalled efforts to solve the nation's gun violence crisis. Later in the day, Walmart announced that it would no longer sell firearms and ammunition to people younger than 21 and would also remove items resembling assault-style rifles from its website. "It's going to take some time for me". Other students have tweeted their shock and disappointment.

Just three days after her own school was on lockdown, González said, "We are up here standing together because if all our government and president can do is send thoughts and prayers, then it's time for victims to be the change that we need to see".
