Students at East High School in Waterloo are standing together to honor a 17-year-old shot and killed.
Trayvon Martin was killed in Florida in February by a volunteer neighborhood watch captain who says he acted in self defense.
Students at East High School there is something to be learned from this situation. They say gun violence needs to stop everywhere.
Miccah Mohorne stood in the East High parking lot with a black hooded sweat shirt on. It said "Am I next?"
"Trayvon has on a hooded sweatshirt so the guy automatically suspected 'oh, he is black, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, he is up to no good'," said Mohorne.
The students didn't know Trayvon Martin, but they are standing together with hooded sweatshirts, Skittles, and Arizona sweet tea. Those were the possessions he had on him the day he died.
"It's not the point he lived so far away. It's the point that its happening here and over there too," said Kyler Littleton, student.
Coast to coast thousands are calling for justice in the death of Martin. Their main goal is to see George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed the unarmed 17-year old, to be held accountable.
