“I’m missing 17 minutes because 17 are missing their lives”

“I stand with Stoneman Douglas”

“Your silence is killing us”

“Why am I scared to go to school”

“Am I next?”

“Don’t walk out on us”

On February 14, 2018 tragedy struck at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. 17 students and teachers were killed when an expelled student pulled the fire alarm and then open-fired on the people filing out of the school. Today, exactly one month after the heinous shooting, students and teachers alike across the country are taking a stand against the lack of protection in our schools, being urged by survivors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Both Lake City High School and Coeur d’Alene High School took part in the historic event, fighting for changes in our school district as well as others across the country.

The LCHS walkout was organized mainly by the H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Everywhere) Club, where both the president Josh Weadick and vice president Zoe O’Brien spoke to the students who walked out. Zoe started the show, giving an overview of why we were all there and then giving her own speech, calling out the people in higher positions who were doing nothing about the issues that are being faced in our schools. Josh Weadick reminded us of the other reason we were there, to remember the 17 lives that were lost. We were all urged to sign the petition and to sign up to vote if we were 18 or older and were also given an option for signing up if we were going to be 18 by this fall. We were urged to have our voices heard. About 200 of our 1700 students participated in the walkout.
