Yesterday, at 10 a.m., thousands of students walked out of their classrooms to honor the memory of the students who were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and to protest the persistence of gun violence in America. The nation-wide walkout occurred exactly one month after the tragic shooting in Parkland and included students from New York City, Washington, Columbine, Newtown, and many other cities across the country. To honor the 17 Marjory Stoneman Douglas students and staff that were killed, the walkout lasted 17 minutes, though many students continued to protest past the allotted time. Here are some of the most powerful moments from yesterday’s walkout.

Hundreds of students from Granada Hills Charter High School in California gathered on the football field to spell out “Enough.”

Students from Newtown, where one of the deadliest school shootings in history occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, made their voices heard.

In West Haven, Connecticut, students placed 17 empty desks in front of their school to honor the Parkland victims.

  1. When selecting games to play with your child, the most important criteria is:
    It's fun. You'll laugh together
    It teaches kids how to follow rules
    It teaches hard skills like counting, matching, reading
    It teaches softer skills like empathy, cooperation, listening
    It brings the kid in on a family tradition
    None of the above
