School safety needs change

When I was a little kid going to kindergarten for a half a day, I wasn’t worried about the possibility of someone coming into my school and shooting everyone. Nowadays some kids are scared to go to school because they think that could happen to them.

School should be a place where kids go to learn and grow in their understanding of our world. One of those understandings shouldn’t be that they could possibly get killed at school. We need to take the proper safeties and precautions to make sure that this does not become something we hear about on the news every day.

People need to understand that this is a real threat in our world and that something needs to change. We need to stop school shootings.
