Join our live coverage of Delco kids taking part in the National School Walkout

17 minutes.

14 days after the latest mass carnage in a school in America, students in Delaware County and across the nation will walk out of class today to honor those we lost at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The National School Walkout is expected to last one minute for each of the victims of the deadly rampage in Parkland, Fla.

But rest assured, this is more than a hollow protest. Young people are raising their voices, intent on seeing real change in the nation's gun laws.

Students are organizing and protesting in ways not seen since their grandparents took to the streets in the '60's to demonstrate against the Vietnam War.

And they are getting results. The Florida Legislature already has passed sweeping gun legislation.

Less than a week they will follow up on today's walkout with a massive march on Washington, D.C., to push for changes in the nation's gun laws.

It is being called the March For Our Lives.

Students across Delaware County will be taking part, and we will be out there covering them.

We invite students to take part in our coverage as well.
