On April 29, 2019, the student gun violence prevention group March For Our Lives released a powerful video titled “Generation Lockdown.” MFOL was created after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S in Parkland, Florida, which left 17 dead and another 17 injured.
The video shows an active shooter training session at a workplace in Northern City, California. The employees appear to be unaware they are being filmed and react in surprise when the trainer is introduced (an “expert in the subject matter”): a young girl approximately 11 years old.
She matter-of-factly walks the adult employees through all the horrifying, traumatizing things she has been forced to do at school during active shooter drills. As she speaks, the employees stare in disbelief. Some cry. They can’t believe what she’s telling them; what we’ve done to our children in this country.
It’s an incredibly powerful message against the “lockdown” culture in our K-12 schools that is traumatizing children while doing absolutely nothing to prevent the next shooting. We still live in a society that values guns more than their well-being and that must change.
