Thousands of students across the country staged a walkout Wednesday to honor the 17 students killed last month at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida

In addition to commemorating the victims, the protests are intended to help spur national action to reduce gun violence. During the walkouts, students planned to observe 17 minutes of silence, one minute for each person killed in the Florida mass shooting.
