A steady light rain fell Wednesday morning while about 55 Baker High School students stood outside the school in silent remembrance of the 17 people who died a month ago in a shooting at a Florida high school.

The students were asked by senior class president Eva Jones-Bedolla to turn off their cellphones before the vigil began. For those 17 minutes, students complied with the request. They did not check their phones, take photos of themselves and their friends or catch up on the latest gossip of the day.

“I was really proud of the students who showed up,” Eva said. “They stood in silence.”

The Baker students joined others from across the country, including 60 at Baker Middle School, who walked out of their classrooms at 10 a.m. local time to participate in a variety of events.
