"Being a freshman you have your next three years you have to be in fear", she said.

"Parkland, it really changed my view", said Emma Heidrick, an eighth-grader at EMS.

"Wallingford is a community that does talk about issues, and we do get involved, but not in a way that's meant to obstruct, but meant to be collaborative", said Menzo.

On Wednesday, students from NY to Nashville to San Francisco walked out of school at 10 a.m.to commemorate the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in which 17 people were killed, and to push for gun reform. They are going to die, ' the student tells the 911 dispatcher. "We have a student population of about 850 and I'd say a quarter of us turned out", she said, adding it was "impressive" so many showed up considering that some students might feel nervous about such a sensitive topic or that some might have even opposed the walkout.

Teenagers from Washington area schools gathered outside the White House, holding up signs reading "Books Not Bullets" and "Protect People Not Guns" before marching on the US Capitol.

He said he understands the need for order and thought that if students had left campus, some probably would have skipped out on the rest of the school day. "I'm not sure exactly where they'll be pulling this all together outside or where the speakers will stand", Chisum said.

The coordinated protests were organized by Empower, the youth wing of the Women's March, which brought thousands to Washington past year.

A line of 17 students held lighted candles, one for each of the Florida shooting victims.

But each community was urged to shape its own protests.

About 40 schools from Berwick to Machias planned to participate in the nationwide #Enough National School Walkout to End Gun Violence, organized by a student-led branch of the Women's March.

"A lot of kids (are). acting out and being loud, speaking up, having a voice", Thompson said. The March for Our Lives rally for school safety is expected to draw hundreds of thousands to the nation's capital on March 24, its organizers said.

In February, Woodbury High School juniors Jackson McGough and Suha Musa launched the Twitter page Woodbury High School Activists by announcing plans for the walkout.

"If you're going to continue to take money from the NRA, and not listen to the children, not listen to the people who are calling and screaming for change to happen as far as gun legislation gun laws, then you will not have my vote, you will not have millions of other people's votes".

"This, to me, is more of a gun-confiscation effort than it is a public-safety measure", Utah Republican Rep. Brian Greene said. Complete silence took over the assemblage for the remainder of the walkout. The gates of the entrance to the front driveway were closed, and a police cruiser blocked the exit.

Both sides are also watching traditionally gun-friendly Vermont, where the Republican governor recently abandoned his stance against new gun control laws after the arrest of an 18-year-old accused of plotting a school shooting. The Haven students said they had originally wanted to hold their event in the morning, but sixth graders had standardized testing.

"I think what we did today was productive, and I do think what we did today sent a good message", said Terzi.
