Forest Hill Falcons Walkout #NationalWalkout

This year, will mark the 19th anniversary of the infamous Columbine Shooting. Since then, there have been over 200 shootings, resulting in over 1,000 deaths. Together, we have all seen the horrors of school shootings. So much so, we've become completely desensitized to hearing about them. We have been labelled as Generation Columbine from all the mass shootings that have happened since we were born. It's time to change that. 

Virginia Tech (32 deaths), Sandy Hook Elementary School (26 deaths), Columbine Highschool (13deaths), and Marjory Stoneman Douglas Highschool (17 deaths).

It ends at Parkland.

We, the students of Forest Hill Highschool will NOT stand for this senseless violence. We walk against the NRA. We walk against Trump who is using the deaths of 17 people to distract people from the federal investigation he is under. We walk against Trump's idea to ban active school shooter drills, in a society where school shootings have become a norm. 

We walk for the ban of military assault rifles. We walk for the end of the NRA, and for businesses and dirty politicians to cease recieving donations by them. We walk for the teachers who will be forced to carry guns in the near future, and forced to open fire against a gunman when a former school resource deputy couldn't.

We walk for change.

We walk for Parkland.

We ask Dr. Mary Stratos to allow us properly organize a student walk-out on March 14th, 2018. Hundreds of school across the country will also be participating in a #NationalWalkout on this day, to have our voices heard by government officials all over the country. Pressure equals Change, and in the 9 days since the shooting, us students have made companies cut ties with the NRA, forced CNN townhall, recieved new commitments from Marco Rubio, pressured Trump to call for bump stock bans, and saw millions donated for this march. We, the students of Forest Hill Community High School, ask that we be part of this change.

We would like to walk from the parking lot of our school down to the School District of Palm Beach, a 40 minute walk. We will work to raise money for water and supplies through a gofundme account, and also would like to come into contact with some of the victims of the shooting itself, so they could speak at the protest.

By signing this petition, you agree to the idea that the Forest Hill Falcons should participate in the #NationalWalkout , alongside hundreds of other schools, and for the hundreds of people who have been killed in school and mass shootings.
