(Also posted on sister site West Seattle Blog)

Students across the country demonstrated Thursday and Friday to plead for an end to gun violence, days after the massacre in Uvalde, Texas. Among the protests today was a Friday morning walkout organized by the student advice at Sainte-Famille Bilingual Catholic School. Participating students left their classrooms at 9am to demonstrate outside the school at 20th and Roxbury.

They began with a prayer, followed by a poem written by the students:

Walker Mae read the poem “How many more?” (the author wished to remain anonymous), after Rianna lead the prayer. Then the students stood in silence for 10 minutes.

Rianna is the student council president and invited us to cover the protest saying, “We are demonstrating that we are against school shootings, gun violence and to show our support for all lives lost in this tragedy. “
