Shasta County, Calif -- Hundreds of students walked out of class on Wednesday for a variety of reasons including educating others on kindness.
Enterprise and Shasta High School in Redding were just a few of the schools participating in the walk out.
Several hundred students left class to support those who had died in the Parkland, Florida mass shooting, as well as Call for stricter gun laws, and raise awareness for mental health problems.
But for one individual at Shasta High School it was about the daily changes students can make to prevent another student from picking up a gun.
"Despite what the nation is doing it really comes down to how we treat eachother and how we decide to protect one another. We think it very very very trivial that that stuff is powerful."
This individual, who was not named , says its about walking up and being kind to those students who feel lost, alone, or hurt.
