At 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 14, the young people of Elko will participate in a National Walk-out to remember the 17 dead in the Florida shooting and to protest the very idea of gun violence in schools.
We're two senior citizens who are way over 40 years removed from being students of any kind. One has bad knees and one uses a cane. However, we're registered for the event and plan to walk in support of these young people and their courage and responsibility for the safety and well-being of every teacher and child in every school in America.
You can walk with them too.
It will only last 17 minutes to honor the deaths of our fellow Americans.
Who can't afford to give 17 minutes?
Bob and Kate Alston
