The national event came on the 19th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High in Littleton, Colo., and nine weeks after 14 students and three educators were shot and killed by a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Fla. "We can be the voice of reason", she said. Roughly 300-400 showed up to the pre-rally event at Brown's Island, but they all shared their powerful message favoring gun control to deter violence in schools.

She added that if the young students are experiencing any perceivable anxiety, "It's that they want to ideal", or perhaps because of family problems.

She said any event-related activities at Vacaville elementaries were organized to be age-appropriate.

Hundreds of people, including students and gun control supporters, gathered in downtown Richmond on Friday to rally against gun violence.

With chants like "Hey, hey, NRA, how many kids did you kill today" and "Enough is enough" ringing out throughout the demonstration, the students were encouraged by the many cars sounding their horns as they passed, and well-wishing onlookers.

Kenny says gun violence in schools has been a part of her life for as long as she can remember, including when she was just five years old, living in Vienna, Virginia, and wasn't allowed to play outside at school because of the threat of the D.C. sniper in 2002.

"It's easy to look around and feel that our legislatures have done nothing".

The topic of gun control has created a divide among citizens in the US for years now, but in light of the recent mass shootings, the divide is more apparent than ever. "Teachers are risking their lives when all they wanted to do was teach and help these children learn and grow and live in an America that is safe". 96 people die every day due to gun violence.

"I think it's definitely starting to get their attention", said Turley.

"This walkout was political", said Turley. "It's really going to start to matter in the 2018 election and beyond".

"I want to wake up tomorrow and know my fourth-hour teacher will be there to teach me; I want to walk across the graduation stage with my best friend holding my hand", Tessa said as she stood with Nace and Brown to offer remarks meant to inspire others to stand up and speak out.
