Photos: Teenagers Demand ‘Never Again’ in an Age of Mass Shootings:


I was critical of the media’s response in my last post, but I have to note how inspirational the high school student’s responses have been.  For one, there are numerous stories of heroism – not to discount the several teachers, three of whom died trying to defend the students – but there was Peter Wang, who guided other students into hiding until he was shot and killed, and there were Colton Haab and his friend (unnamed) who concealed 60+ students behind kevlar mats.

Since the tragedy the students have been very active with the media and politics, traveling to Fort Lauderdale, Delray Beach, Washington DC and Florida’s state capital (pictured above) for vigils and demonstrations.  I don’t think I’ve seen this level of concern and involvement spring up so suddenly in young people.
