We are so inspired by students, many risking disciplinary action, who walked out of their classrooms to commemorate the 17 children killed in Parkland, Florida. We’re also cognizant that we adults have let them down, and need to step up by electing government officials that actually care about student safety and passing gun control legislation. Here are but a smattering of photos and videos taken across the country yesterday.
