“The day of High School I’ll never forget” by Medium

Read this blog post by an Arapahoe High School student about the shooting last Friday.

He penned a message on his hand to his family, in case they had to find his body.

One thing I learned, is that you never really know anything like this could happen to you, until it does.

    Such a powerful image. Sad, because this young boy had to leave this message in case he died at the hands of another boy. Why?

    Thank you for sharing this.

      This generation of kids has been impacted and traumatized in such a terrible way.

      Thank you for reading, Robin.

    I simply cannot understand why children are killing other children. This society has hit the bottom.

      It’s so frustrating. I’m glad I found Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, though, because it’s such a source of hope.

    This brought tears to my eyes. How scary and horrifying for all those involved. Will hug my boys extra tonight.

      I grew up during the Cold War, terrified of a nuclear bomb attack. This is so much more real and horrifying. I am so sad for this generation of kids.

    Chilling and terrifying. I keep thinking of that lyric of Heather’s, “I know something like this could never happen to me. But to any other I could be that somebody.” Thanks for reposting this.

      What line, considering.

      Thanks M.
