Letter: Walkout falsely advertised

Letter: Walkout falsely advertised

  • 0

I was not there for the walk out at Lebanon High School so I cannot comment first hand on what happened.

I was told by several young people that a lot of the students walked out just to walk out of class not to honor anyone. I do not know how true that was. What I can say is I was told in the beginning this was not supposed to have anything at all to do with gun control it was supposed to honor those that lost their lives.

Obviously this was not true. I do not know for sure if these students walked out and honored the 17 minutes of silence like it was said they were supposed to do.

What I do know is many schools across the United States did not do this. It was more of a protest against guns, instead of a march to honor those that lost their lives. The students protested for stricter gun control and even to get rid of the second amendment rights. Why was this falsely advertised?
