What if I told you that there were 59 reported cases of gun violence yesterday alone and in those reported cases, 12 people died and 53 were injured. According to gunviolencearchive.org we find these number alarming yet sadly, we find them becoming more and more normal. As I sit here thinking about those numbers, I think of the days where we didn’t have to worry about walking around in a mall, sitting in a movie theatre watching a movie, or better yet…sending our children to school worrying if today would be the day something would happen at their school. As a new mother, I can’t imagine the stress that falls onto parents across the world feeling helpless in their child’s safety at school.
So how common are school shootings really…
School shooting are undeniably becoming more and more frequent and are averaging out to 1 shooting per week. According to the Washington Post, more than 215,000 students have experienced gun violence at school since Columbine. It’s unfortunate, but these numbers are our reality. It’s unfortunate that we must have specified training and security measures implemented into our school, but it is our reality. Most of all, it’s unfortunate that innocent children are suffering the consequences before, and after, each incident, but it is our reality. We must take control of our reality!
