Whitman County Gazette - Serving Whitman County since 1877

Common goal

 

January 17, 2019



Credit to the Gazette for choosing to include “Colfax students walk out in wake of gun violence, others stay inside” as one of 2018’s top stories published in the Whitman County Gazette.

In joining many other students across the country who participated in the walkout on March 14th we had hoped to draw recognition to the rise and continuation of gun violence taking place in schools, as well as demand action from a stagnated Congress who was not taking steps to protect students. By including this piece as a top story of 2018, you have shown that the conversation we wanted to start is still ongoing.

While those of us who participated in the walkout never pretended to have all (or even any!) of the answers to the problem of gun violence in schools, we hoped that our actions could spark a dialogue in which all of us could recognize a common goal- the need to keep students safe.

--Kiah Miller, Colfax
