One editor’s opinion


Our nation dedicated a day to remember the 17 lives that were taken during a shooting in Parkland.

Students particapated in a 17-minute walk out on March 14.

Each minute was for each life lost, but was it really an honorary occasion?

Instead of honoring those who lost their lives, the students at Westside seemed to walked out to honor the 17 minutes of no learning and free time.

Instead of acknowledging the students and families in Parkland,  the students at Westside decide it would be a good idea to put in a quick game of basketball or play some tag. There was even a fight at school on this day.

I am deeply humiliated with the amount of childishness in this high school.

Even some of the teachers were embarrassed by the immaturity of the students. It’s pretty sad when students can’t take 17 minutes out of their day to remember grieving families and the lives lost.

    #Brandi I feel as if it is a great idea to do the 17 min walk because it’s about the lives that were lost during an incident like school shootings

    my opinion is that us young adults should be the bigger person and act our age.

    Not everybody that did the walk out last year was out there just to get out of class. I participated in the walk out and I did it for the lives lost not the free time. Don’t give all of the students a bad name because of the few who don’t know how to act
