On Wednesday, students across the country will walk out of their classrooms for 17 minutes with two goals in mind: to honor the 17 people killed in last month's shooting at a Florida high school and to push for stricter gun control legislation. We'll check in on protests around the Bay Area and would like to hear from you: What do you think of the walkout? Are you or your children walking out? Why or why not?
