Students at Wood River High School will be among them.

Alex Arreaza, Borges' attorney, says that it's "going to be a tough recovery ... it's a miracle that we're even talking about recovery".

"After an event you hear about different heroes that were in the room or people who helped something, and its typically not law enforcement", he notes. "We feel confident that the school in question is a very safe school".

"They're putting a Band-Aid on something that needs major surgery", said Sarah Cawthon of Tallahassee, one of a dozen protesters. "Do we allow children to tell us that we should pass a law that says no homework?. No".

"They're getting together to come to more of a defined plan", he said. They want students to be able to express themselves.

"I'm asking for people to be more aware", said Cohen. And while bearing arms could be an "option" for certain highly-trained school personnel, it's "certainly not one that needs to be required or mandated for every community", she added.

Students will neither be encouraged nor discouraged from participating in the walkout, though if they choose to do so, they will receive an unexcused absence for the missed class period. ENOUGH ignoring data that shows how school shootings can be prevented.

"Some students at last week's Somerville protest carried handmade signs with messages such as "#Never Again", "We Call BS", and "Protect Children Not Guns". "There's a difference", said Johnson.

"They have a voice, and they have not just the rights but the avenues, and if they exercise those in the right way, meaningful and positive change can happen", he said. "I would like to see other options that can be effective". But the group also will look at facilities and other areas for improvement. We also recognize the United States has exported gun violence through imperialist foreign policy to destabilize other nations.

As of March 2 there are 1,965 walkouts registered with Women's March Youth Empower website for the March 14 #Enough event.
