February 14, 2018 will forever go down in history as one of the worst days for Parkland, Florida. The most recent mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School  killed 17 and injured 14. A day of loving quickly turned out to be one of the scariest days for many. 

This most recent school shooting showed the world that schools aren’t as safe as they used to be. Students, teachers, and parents all opened up about their opinions on the matter. Students of all ages have taken a stand to show the government that the schools they go to everyday, may not be safe at all times. 

On March 14,2018, one month after this most recent mass shooting, was marked as a day of protest for students all over the world. It was not only to show support to the Parkland school, but to show the government that the students want new laws to protect them. The Hawthorne High Student Council  and Superintendent Mr. Spirito met to talk about the walkout, and decided it would be safer to do a sit in instead.

On March 14,2018 at 10:00 am Hawthorne High Students went down to the gymnasium to show their support to Parkland. This lasted 17 minutes, one minute for each victim. During this time students had the option to sign a poster that would be sent down to Parkland. Orange stickers that had #enough were handed out to the students that came to show their support.
