Somerset Students Gather in Remembrance of Mass Shooting Victims #NeverAgain

Yesterday, February 21st, at 12 PM, students from schools all over South Florida, SASP being one of those schools, walked out of class and took to the streets in an effort to pay respects to the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting from last week and to protest against gun violence. 

Students from the middle school and the high school gathered together for 17 minutes of silence and an expression of each victims' name followed by a reflective chanting of the words " we will remember". As pictured, several students also chose to wore orange shirts, the color for gun violence awareness, as an act of remembrance and prevention. It was a time of respect and unity, and although I personally would have loved to actually leave the school campus and hold up banners while marching through the streets, as other nearby schools did, I am proud to have been a part of this moment. 

Do not hesitate to share your own experiences with me if your school has or will be taking part in similar events in the days and weeks to come. I would love to hear about what we are all doing for our communities.

      We live in a disturbing time, yet I'm old enough to recall how outraged the world was over Vietnam and how many took to the streets to rally against the war. I also recall the racial imbalance that disenfranchised minorities and the spirit of the overwhelming hordes of people who were inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King to march in protest. What a travesty that gun violence in our schools has spiraled to a level that inspires marches and protests. I will absolutely be standing with them and hope that all of America will do so.
