ROSEBURG, OR. -- The Student Government at Umpqua Community College showed their support for the students walking out on Wednesday as part of the #March4OurLives.

They set up their "Be the One" booth, with orange ribbons and bracelets for anyone to wear.

They want anyone to feel they can "Be the One" to stand up against violence in schools and make a difference, because they feel enough is enough.

"It’s going to take everybody as individuals to stand up and say no to this and to show our support and our care to others and reach out to others to make the change,” said Student Body President Byronna Thomas.

Another member of the student body government said it's about more than just gun control.

“To stand in solidarity, and to stand-up for something that, quite frankly, should be common sense. You know, we don’t want – I have two children, and I worry every day when they go to school that theirs might be next,” said Robert Mountainspring-Wood.
