Young people across America took a stand for their safety and walked out of their classrooms this week. It's estimated that thousands of protests took place on Wednesday at 10 a.m. While some students spoke out as to why they would not be partaking in the National Walkout others got creative and honored those lost in the Parkland shooting.

Other major headlines of the week included the ousting of Rex Tillerson and Trump's 'bag man' Johnny McEntee, a deadly bridge collapse and a bizarre ordeal involving a bride who was arrested while driving to her own wedding.

Click through the slideshow above to see photos from all of these events and more, and be sure to check back next weekend for our selection of the best photography from the week.
