The panic, the fear, the feeling of huddling up with your entire class. I can't imagine my child having to go through this. It's not anything anyone wants to experience, and it's definitely not something I want my kid to go through.
I honestly don't remember the last time I saw someone so...armed. Maybe it was the last time I was on a military base. I'm glad the officers were present at both schools but seeing this picture makes you think. It seems like as of lately we're constantly facing threats. We're working hard to protect our children but it's sad that we have to go to these protective measures.
