Moody High School students walk out in memory of Parkland Shooting victims on the anniversary of Columbine. ... See MoreSee Less

Moody High School students walk out in memory of Parkland Shooting victims on the anniversary of Columbine.

544 students participated in the walkout at Moody.

I bet if it was held after school to stand for 17 minutes. They would rather go home then stand so where is the respect in that . They only do it to kill time on a Friday.

They just wanted an excuse to skip class. How about you make friends or make a point of involving the kids that are bullied or picked on, that feel the need to turn to gun violence

Willing to bet none of these kids no nothing about firearms. If they cared about life as they claim they do, where are there protests against Planned Parent hood?

You folks are heartless. Complete lack of moral authority and you should be ashamed of yourselves! These kids are far more mature than some of you.

Whoever passed away... But you can't name any name of those you're devastated over? Get back in class....

These kids weren’t even thought of when this happened! Kids are always making an excuse to get out of class, to play on there phones. Get back to class and learn, and stop bullying other kids!

When kids are speaking out about how tired they are of getting shot up in school, and your response is to try and silence them...you give up any moral authority you had. 👍🏻

how can people say we need to stop bullying when you're literally bullying these kids on here by saying they don't know what they are talking about when they are trying to stand up for they believe in

Amazing how they aren't allowed to be out without a doctors excuse but yet they can walk out in protest. SMDH!

Should be praying and saying the pledge to our flag that give them this right to do so. You can't have some of the constitution without the rest of it.

Half of those kids on the field don’t even know why they are there! All they know is there classmates are doing it and follow the sheep to get of school

Ask these kids what games they play on play station 4 and Xbox... Hello aren't you shooting at people on the game... 😂

People need to get a grip on there kids if l would have done that when l was a kid my dad would still be whipping my but what there doing is not going to do a bit of good it's a waste of time

I really hope they know the importance of this walk out and not just doing so to out of class. I pray our community never goes thru this.

#neverforget the reason we have the right to bear arms, #neverforget I’ll never give my rights up to bear arms, #neverforget that mental illness and the lack of morals is the cause of the tragedies....

Just seems like they’re protesting since it’s the cool thing to do and they want to get out of class. #prosecondamendment

These comments are stupid there standing up for what they believe if I was there I could care less of on day just to walk out and stand for what I believe

I can’t believe it’s been almost 20 years since Columbine 😥 good for these students to do such in the memory of Parkland ❤️

I see kids on their phones....just a way to get out of school....they need to go back to class and read a book.

All schools should have a comments box available to the kids. School counselors should be doing more. These kids clearly need to vent with no judgment.

In those 13 sec half those kids were thinking about where they will go after to smoke weed and drink maybe even go to the beach lol

Most of those kids don't even care what the purpose of "walking out of school" is for they are just out there doing it to get out of class and socialize smh

In my opinion this is the most stupid thing yo do someone could of done a drive by and shot everyone...
