We need more Mr. Rogers but instead kids have gotten school shooting drills alongside fire drills since Columbine. It’s a whole new generation raised with the knowledge that any of their classmates could be THEIR next shooter.. or self worrying, “Is it me? Will I be the one to snap?” They’re not post 9/11 but post Columbine.

My 12 yr old nephew’s favorite song is “Pumped up kicks”. While we went about our lives, 18 yrs of school shooting drills have been going on in schools.

My mom’s generation had “duck and cover”. I had nuclear alarm drills with instructions. Kids today have had school shooting drills.
