RICHMOND, Va. — Thousands of students in Central Virginia and around the country walked out of class Wednesday as part of The National School Walkout. Both a memorial to the Florida high school shooting victims and a protest against gun violence, the walkout happened at 10 a.m. with students walking out of schools and universities for 17 minutes — one minute to honor each Florida victim.
