In response to recent school shootings across the country, you may have heard that there is a national social media movement underway for students and staff to protest the most recent school violence. There are a few events scheduled over the next couple of months, including March 14th and April 20th, where organizers are asking students and teachers to walk out of the classroom for 17 minutes to recognize each of the lives lost in Florida.
