Hundreds of Newport High School students joined the nationwide protests today

Hundreds of Newport High School students joined the nationwide protests today.

They walked out of their classrooms at 10 am for 17 minutes to honor and remember the  Parkland, Florida students.

17 young lives were lost. 17 lives were wasted on February 14th, one month ago today. Students had a microphone to speak to share their thoughts in tribute with each other.

Thank you so much, to the Lincoln County School Administration’s support in making this a sacred and safe event for our children! The pain is unbearable; we must focus and protest the inaction on guns. Columbine was almost 20 years ago and it goes on.  Enough is enough!  #neveragain
