Local school prays instead of walking out
In Gulfport, Christian Collegiate Academy had their own take on National School Walkout Day.
Instead of going out, high school and middle school students all gathered to pray and talk about the recent events and the importance of school safety.
Elementary classes also spent time in prayer and learned about the importance of acting kind towards others. Christian Collegiate Academy Campus Pastor Ron Young said, “We also have the ability here where we can gather together and just be very open and honest. We just had a time where we came together and just had prayer as a student body for safety, but also for the families of the victims.”
Around three hundred students participated in today’s prayer and assembly.
