      @Hassan Mohamud Parkland is a manufactured event, using crisis actors, and in this case, they used this wounded Columbian kid's wounds in this fake event so people think it was real. He was brought in to make it seem real. Notice how ashamed he seems, as he regurgitates his lines.

    Before I realized what happened I said “I wish I was him”. Then realizing that he was shot I said “Nevermind...” then I realized the sacrifice he made for others and Then I said, “I wish I was like him.

      He wasn't shot in Parkland. That part is the manipulation. War for our minds. Ignore Mass-Media's emotion-hijacking.
