Other community members described gun violence in their families, including Haley Rinehart, whose son accidently shot himself in the head while away visiting family when he was 4 years old. On Saturday, they were going door-to-door along Fayetteville Street to garner support for their March for Our Lives rally in downtown Raleigh next Saturday, March 24. "A student reported to a teacher that a message was written on a bathroom stall wall that said 'shoot up school 3/19/18 2:35.' We called the police immediately and the Saratoga County Sheriff's department and New York State Police both came to the school; they're working collaboratively to investigate, they're still investigating".

"I've talked to a lot of students around here to get their opinions and see what they have to say and I'm hoping to bring that to the capitol", Kaunonen said.

"I'm just here for the kids", Dent said. After receiving massive criticism over this absurd idea, the president backtracked and said he only wanted "adept teachers who can shoot". According to the March for Our Lives website, more than 700 sibling protests are scheduled worldwide to call for an end to gun violence. "Working with money people and law people and everybody else from home today", Kasky tweeted last month.

"It was disappointing that our school teaches us to be like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. - people who stood up for what they believed in". On the reverse, the sign noted the number of casualties of several mass shootings.

But the students insist their aim isn't partisan: "We're just trying to make sure that morally just people are running this country", Stoneman Douglas senior Ryan Deitsch told the AP. "I know from south Alabama, they wouldn't", he continued. When asked what sort of oversight mechanisms are set up to ensure the money is going to the students' desired reforms, the spokesperson said, "The board of directors will handle".

At least 13 metro-east schools worked with students to allow some type of participation in the national event, including Alton, Columbia, Collinsville, Freeburg, Highland, Madison, Granite City, Mascoutah, Roxana, Sparta, Triad and Wesclin high schools.

Del Potro hands Federer first loss of season, wins Indian Wells title
And Federer made him pay for his error, winning the two following points to take the match to a third and deciding set. It was Federer's first loss of the year, this best start ever to a season remarkably at the ripe old age of 36.

"We're sick and exhausted of having to live with this normalcy of turning on the news and watching a mass shooting", he added.

"Especially after events like the Florida shooting, Sandy Hook, all these children being killed, I think people are exhausted of it", Delzer said. Every child has a right to live and to dream and to strive for a future that is not destroyed in a second because we cowered before a seemingly incorrigible special interest lobby and refused to protect them. If politicians really want to reduce school violence, fund books and supplies and pay teachers to stay in the profession they love.

My 17 minutes here are up, but my commitment to the students, staff and our community will continue... albeit forever changed. One minute for each of the Parkland victims. "You have to go an actually do something", she said.

There was also a large walkout at the middle school.

The interview also includes short clips from others involved in the shooting, including an interview with Manuel and Patricia Oliver, who lost their son, Joaquin, in the shooting.
