Exclusive: Cambridge students silenced protesting gun violence

On March 14th 2018, thousands of students across America walked out of their schools for 17 minutes at 10 a.m. on the one-month anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The 17 minutes honor the 17 lives taken that day. Some students held hands in the hallways and around the flag pole, sang songs or read the names of the victims. Locally, many schools participated in various ways. At Cambridge High School in Milton, Georgia, two students were stopped from voicing their concerns when their microphone was turned off mid speech. The Milton Herald and Black Box investigations exclusively obtained a copy of what they would have said, had they been permitted to continue.
