With everything going on in the world today it is hard to walk around like everything is okay when it is not. On February 14, the Parkland shooting happened, and 17 innocent lives were lost. I feel like this tragedy opened the eyes of many people around the world. There has been many more school shooting in the United States, but from the Parkland shooting it was #Enough
This mass school shooting made me feel sadness for the parents who lost their children on the day meant for love. I can only imagine the pain and grief that these parents are going through. It made me rethink if i was safe at school because anything is bound to happen. I also seen video accounts of the victims in the shooting and it was terrible.
This mass shooting made people all over the world closer. I realized how blessed I was to still have my family and friends with me. It made people realize that something has to be done and peaceful protests were taken place in many states.
On national walkout day, March 14, I felt that the right thing to do was take a stand for the people who lost their lives in the shooting. Hundreds of students, including me, stood outside, in the cold, for 17 minutes, which shows that we care and want something to be done.
My opinion on gun laws and restrictions today are that they could be more strict. Nowadays at the age of 18, people can get their hands on guns legally and easily. If gun laws were more strict for minors and people, in general, to get guns, these tragic incidents would most likely be to a minimum. Also background checks, should be conducted so that guns do not go into the hands of dangerous people.
I believe that i us citizens work together towards a common goal that we can make a change in the world today. At these times, working together is the most important thing to do. We have to stand for change and make the world a better place.
