    We all know gun laws don't work. We need to,have multiple armed guards at schools. We guard our money with guns, are our children not more valuable?

      @david126879 Its good if they're trying to take them away no one should have a gun unless over the age of 21. That's what I think at least._.

    Who. The. Fuck. Cares? Arm our teachers, this CAN be prevented if they were armed. Blame yourselves, you did this no one else. Glad to know your kids were killed but you'd rather ban guns instead of using them to protect your kids. You have no one to blame but yourself, too bad there were survivors.

      Good thing I live in Canada. Of course we still have shooting but that's more in Toronto. Where I live our school doesn't even have shooting drills, never have been in a drill for shooting only high wind and fire... I'm so glad I don't need to worry about getting shot 24/7

    this is so sad. this has become a normalized thing but i think people should stop to think about the fact that it’s not just “another dead student” it is someone that will never be able to speak again, never be able to come home to their dog or their siblings again. someone that will never be able to experience having a 16th or 18th birthday. this is sad and it needs to be fixed so other kids don’t get hurt

    Brooke that takes strength and bravery to read a letter like that. Ur heart was warm and touch. I would have stopped and cried. My dad passed away 12 years ago and every day and on every Father’s Day it hits me hard to even think about him. He was my hero and I miss every day. He wasn’t the best father but, he did his best to be one. Thank I for be strong enough to read her mom’s letter to her daughter on air. That was beautiful! 😢💕🙏🏽

    Those are words no parent should ever say “it’s been a year since I’ve last seen you alive”. This is a thing no one, no matter their age, should ever go through, specially not a child, specially not like that.
    To Alyssa’s mom: you’re so strong, you’re so brave. it could have been more easy to let the pain drag you down but instead you fought back, with the undying love that bonds a girl and her mama together. Thank you for what you’re doing, I’m sorry that there wasn’t someone that fought for your beautiful girl the way you’re fighting for so many children to stay safe. I am sorry for your loss.
    To Alyssa: you may be gone now but your memory will live forever, at your young age you can rest assured that your legacy is one of hope and love and courage. Rest In Peace.

    No one (at least me) thinks all guns should be taken away from citizens. I just feel that there should be more qualifications and precautions for someone carrying a weapon. I think it’s dumb how parents carry guns and let their children use them without a license.
