Last week a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. left 17 students and class members dead and many more wounded. This event adds to an ever growing list of mass shootings that have occurred in the U.S. in the past decade.
What makes this shooting different, however, is how the surviving students have reacted. The victims are calling on congress to act, holding rallies and town halls, and are organizing marches and walk out events.
Across the country students have answered the call to action. In Utah a "March For Our Lives" has been organized for March 24 at the capital. Two separate dates for student walk outs have been announced, March 14th and April 20th, and schools across Utah have students pledging to participate. As of now, Herriman is not one of them.
How congress and President Donald Trump choose to react to these protests remains to be seen, but Parkland has the potential to be the turning point in the battle for gun control.
The Telegram will update students on any Herriman related protests being organized.
