Taconic Student Explains Why He Didn’t Participate in Walkout (Video)
Slater and I went over to Taconic High School on Tuesday morning for the student walkout against gun violence.
It was very interesting to be a part of it all and see hundreds of students walk down Valentine Road. It was done very peacefully and very respectfully; not only with the students who marched, but also with one student who chose not to participate.
Full disclosure -- we received this student's name, who is a senior at Taconic High School, but we will choose not to reveal it without a discussion with his parents. However, he spoke to us, and other members of the media to discuss why he decided not to join the protest. Watch the short video below as he took a very respectful stance against Tuesday morning's walkout.
