Students in Minnesota are set to stage walkouts today in protest against gun violence. It comes in the wake of last week’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Texas. Aaliyah Murray is a senior at Fridley High School and leader of the non-profit Minnesota Teen Activists. She says she doesn’t want to “be a student in fear for my life in school. It’s very important to me because we’re teenagers, elementary students, college students– we’re not supposed to be targets. We have hopes and dreams.” Murray says about what happened to the students in Texas, “that could have been me, that could have been my little sister, that could be my little brother, that could be my cousin, that could be my peers and it’s very important to me and for everybody around us. I think every student right now feels that fear.” The students are demanding action from elected leaders to take steps toward tighter gun restrictions and to allocate more resources towards mental health services.
