On March 14, nearly 500 Grace students in Grades 4-12 formed a human chain around Grace Church School and our neighbors and observed 17 minutes of silence for the victims of the Parkland, Florida mass shooting as part of the National School Walkout Day. Students, their arms linked, stretched from 10th
street up 4th
Ave., across 12th
street, down Broadway and back across 10th
street as a symbolic shield for their school, classmates, and siblings. You can watch a Facebook Live video
of the demonstration below.
