  • Students evacuating Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Fla. after a mass shooting on Valentine's Day

The day after the Parkland massacre in Florida, I searched for places where I could hide my students just in case a shooter came into our school. Tragically, they have learned that mass murder can happen anywhere.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said he hopes a gun and school-safety bill is passed before the annual legislative session ends March 9.

A law enforcement officer talks with students, Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018, in Parkland, Fla. They're calling "BS" on what they see as social injustices. Maybe you began following them on Twitter. In many ways, they are not so different from the woman whose name their school bears.

After the February 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, city spokesman Todd De Angelis said removing Cruz's name "seemed the only logical course of action". Since then, student activists have been an nearly constant presence.

Under heavy police guard, Siccone joined most of her almost 3,300 fellow students who returned to the scene of the massacre, meeting first Wednesday with others who shared their terror in their fourth-period classes. "I probably broke down into tears 10-plus times and had to walk out of my classes multiple times throughout the day", she said.

"It's very emotional", she said.

An earlier report on the call logs published by Fox News showed that the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School would have been over by the time Jordan gave her order.

This is a stripped down version of Android that's created to run smoothly on low-end smartphones with under 1GB of RAM. Next in line is the Alcatel 3 series, which can be broken down into three phones; the Alcatel 3, 3X, and 3V.

That steadfast certainty and total willingness to speak brutal truth to power are key traits she shares with the survivors of the Parkland shooting. Zeldin has received an A rating from the National Rifle Association.

"I can imagine, we were both studying hard".

There are many ways to describe what González exhibited in that glorious moment, as in so many others since the shooting. For years, adults who seemed to neither understand nor respect teenagers have been talking about what these young people do and don't understand, what they do and don't care about, what they do and don't take seriously. The group sent email alerts to its members this week urging them to pressure lawmakers to reject key provisions, including a ban on bump stocks, a three-day waiting period and raising the age to 21 for all gun purchases. Penalties will also extend to staff, she wrote.

"I'm going to keep going, whenever opportunity strikes, such as right now, just spreading the message", he said. Bill Galvano, the Republican who's been shepherding the bill through the Senate, says special interests like some parts of the bill and hate others.

Much of this has been brought on by a lack of intelligent and common-sense gun legislation from the partisan politicians who were supposed to protect them.

Just like Marjory Stoneman Douglas before them, they have decided that if this is going to get done, they are going to have to do it on their own.
