Elida students empathize with shooting survivors

Pray with us for the families. But Sandy Hook occurred when I was 12, old enough to know the pain in the eyes' of parents who lost their children.

But maybe the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will channel their patron saint's energy and tenacity, and reclaim her name and her legacy as a force for making big, important things happen. The subsidiary did roughly $47 million in business with USA schools with students from kindergarten to 12th grade in a year ago, says Dan Glover, a product manager for the company's door group.

The massacre was among the worst school shootings in USA history.

While out of class, Parkland students have urged politicians to pass sensible gun reform to keep assault rifles out of potential mass shooters' possessions. The same people who have given us this disturbing nickname-politicians, lobbyists and the media-are the people who have done nothing to prevent them.

Hundreds of armed officers from surrounding police departments stand in solidarity as this school's student body takes the first steps to a new normal on campus.

Students like sophomore Liam Kiernan are grateful for the love and support. "We walk in here and we are scared", said student Amber Price.

"I'm excited. I want to see my friends and my teachers", said Bruna, wearing a maroon Stoneman Douglas High T-shirt and matching sneakers. It's been such a traumatic process for everyone in the Stoneman Douglas community.

"My son walks in here without his sister", Fred Guttenberg said. They tackled her and she tackled them.

That's an absurdly draconian policy, antithetical to our best traditions of democracy, and I'm proud of our universities for challenging it.

Students were told leave their backpacks at home. Offered as a free service, the counselors work with student's schedules to ensure they receive proper attention. Some are still recovering from their injuries.

"But I'm graduating", she said.

"We've seen them grow up and us being there for them is the least we can do". According to Vox, nine in 10 public schools now hold mass shooting drills for students.

Even as those students returned to school this week, a small but growing number of US educational leaders have been quietly responding to the wave of similar recent tragedies by fortifying their schools with blast-resistant doors and locks, high-tech glass and other equipment that may safeguard students and teachers from an active shooter. We should encourage students to express their opinions in whatever way they choose.

"They're sad", Todd said.

The district's decision to impose penalties came after a February 27 meeting of school officials.

Outside the school, students set up a makeshift memorial, made up of several crosses surrounded by stuffed animals, flowers and photos of the victims.

"Today was a major milestone for us", he said.

For the first time since a gunman claimed the lives of 17 of their classmates and teachers, wounded 14 others and took aim at many more, the survivors gathered again Wednesday to resume studies the killings put on pause. Students have noticed. They're speaking up. "They continue to show us their resilience". Our schools need to be safer.

His 16-year-old daughter, Gabriella, was walking across campus when she heard the barrage of shots and ran upstairs to an adjacent building. She began to trend on Twitter after she spoke at a protest.

There was no way to ever repay Gilliam, but Figueroa said he had to do something. "You are an outstanding teacher". If you wanted to see a dog, you could tell your teacher, and they'd call to request that one be brought to the classroom.

It's likely she'd also be impressed by the passionate advocacy of young leaders who traveled to Florida's state capital to rally for gun control legislation. It is the beginning of a story of grief that may last a lifetime. Principal Ty Thomas tweeted that the school's focus would be on "emotional readiness and comfort, not curriculum".

The epicenter of the violence - Building 12 - is ringed by a chain-link fence. And just to see the love from all the other schools that were involved around Broward County was just so incredible.
