Hundreds of students across Utah are participating in a walkout this morning to protest gun violence. It's part of a nationwide demonstration following a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla., exactly one month ago. 

Students are walking out of their classrooms for 17 minutes, one for each victim of the Florida shooting. Many are calling for stricter gun laws and improved school safety. 

KUER reporter Lee Hale was on site at Corner Canyon High School in Draper, Utah. Listen to what the morning felt like:
