A small contingent of Morristown High School students walked out of classes on Thursday morning to mark the one-year anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL.
The orderly demonstration on school grounds was captured in this video by the Morristown Department of Public Safety, as police and school officials provided security:

Last March, one student defied administrators and left the MHS campus, while a few others mingled outside the school entrance as part of a National Student Walkout.
Later that month, Morristown High students were among organizers of the March for Our Lives in Morristown.
And in April, hundreds of MHS students participated in a second National Student Walkout, parading around the football field with the approval of school officials.
Seventeen students and staff members were gunned down at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School last Valentine’s Day by a former student.
Students from that school visited Morristown in August as part of a national tour lobbying for common-sense gun laws.
