To remember the lives of the 17 people who had passed away in the Parkland Tragedy, Oswego High School decided on March 14, to hold a memorial dedicated to the lives that were taken.
In an extended third hour, students walked out into the hall in rows of 17 as Democracy School Team members read short paragraphs about those who passed. They all gave a brief description of who that person was and the brave individuals who had saved others in risking their own lives from the shooter. After all were honored, there was a ten second silence to reflect the lives that were taken from us.
When students had walked into the hall some had stayed in class and had reflected differently. Yet the topic of gun control is still up for debate today as students walked out hand and hand and stated their opinion on the topic.
