Thousands of students across the country walked out of their schools at 10 a.m. on Wednesday to mark the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The students — who left from elementary schools, universities, and every grade in between — called for stricter gun laws using signs like "I wanna make it to graduation" and "no more silence." According to organizers, people at more than 2,800 schools and universities signed up to participate. Take a look at the powerful protests across the nation below.
