-

School shooting survivor relives experience 4:24 (CNN) — “Again.” That was the headline on the front page of the Dallas Morning News on Wednesday morning, after 19 children and two teachers were killed by an 18-year-old gunman in Texas. It is a feeling that many people have. The one at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, is the third mass shooting this week, according to the Gun Violence Archive, and comes days after high-profile shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Orange County, California. With almost two dozen victims, it is one of the biggest attacks on schools in the last decade. “These are kids who are under 10 years old, a lot of the time. I don’t even know how they start to process it, I don’t know how anyone of any age starts to process this,” David Hogg said on CNN’s New Day. “This is something that should never have happened,” said Hogg, who was a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, when 17 people were killed by a gunman in 2018. While people across the country are in mourning, here’s what parents, educators and students who have experienced past school shootings in the wake of what has become a national epidemic are saying. “The next one is going to happen,” says a father Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime was killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in 2018, speaks with Anderson Cooper. Four years ago, Fred Guttenberg lost his daughter Jaime in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Hearing about the deaths in Uvalde, he felt like he was back on that day in 2018, he told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday. “I can’t stop thinking about these families today who need to figure out how they’re going to bury their children, who need to figure out how they’re going to comfort their other children, who need to figure out how they’re going to deal with the reality that they had other children probably in that school that they’re going to have PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), that they need to put together a eulogy,” he said. And he continued: “We know the next one is going to happen because we haven’t done anything to fix it.” “It changes people forever,” says college student Cameron Kasky was at the 2018 Parkland school shooting. These days, Cameron Kasky is a student at Columbia University in New York. But he’s also a survivor: one of the students who was in the 2018 Parkland school shooting. In an appearance on CNN, he criticized the response of President Joe Biden and other politicians, saying not enough is being done to pass safety laws. common sense gun safety. “There’s a new (shooting) every day. And that’s on a good day, because on bad days there are quite a few,” he said. “These students are going to be going back to school soon and they’re going to live lives and have childhoods and early adulthood that are completely scarred by this tragedy. From what I’ve seen with Parkland and with all these other horrific shootings, it changes to the people forever.” “We have to do something to save these kids,” says Parkland survivor David Hogg, a survivor of a school shooting and one of the founders of the advocacy group March For Our Lives. Hogg is founder and board member of March For Our Lives, a student-led group advocating for gun control legislation. When a gunman entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, he remembers hiding in a closet while more than a dozen of his classmates died. “The reality is that if I’m just talking about this, and Congress is talking about this, after there’s been the equivalent of another Sandy Hook or another Parkland or another Buffalo … we’re failing our kids,” Hogg said. CNN’s John Berman. Sandy Hook library worker recalls ‘fear and horror’ Mary Ann Jacobs was working in the Sandy Hook Elementary School library at the time of the mass shooting nearly 10 years ago. Six years before Hogg, Mary Ann Jacobs also hid in a closet during the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. She remembers hearing the sound of gunshots while huddled with more than a dozen children ages 9 and three. colleagues, he said during a news conference Wednesday in Connecticut. “Yesterday, she was back in that closet, remembering the fear and horror we experienced trying to be brave for the children we were with, while being more afraid than ever in our lives,” she said. And she continued: “How many more children have to die in our schools for our federal legislators to act?” ‘A parent’s worst nightmare,’ says mother Lori Alhadeff’s daughter, Alyssa, was a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and was murdered in 2018. Lori Alhadeff remembers receiving the text four years ago reporting that shots had been fired at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Children were running and jumping over fences, she said during an appearance Wednesday on CNN’s New Day. A sense of loss and fear washed over her. That day, she waited for hours to be told about her daughter Alyssa, answering questions about her appearance and her clothes. Finally, she found out: Alyssa was dead, shot eight times. “It’s so horrible. It’s very painful to find out,” Alhadeff said. “My daughter Alyssa, who was only 14, was shot eight times in her English class. She is a parent’s worst nightmare.” “We talk… then we don’t do anything,” says a US parent. remember the Columbine school shooting 1:43 More than two decades ago, Tom Mauser’s son, Daniel, was killed at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, during one of the most notorious school shootings in United States history. Joined. This Tuesday night, after learning of the shooting in Uvalde, he had trouble sleeping, he told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday. “Thinking about what those parents are going through, even those whose children survived, they were waiting, waiting, waiting for information, to know if they were going to be one of the victims,” ​​she said. “And thinking of the children who were in those classrooms. Their lives have changed.” And she continued: “It’s really hard to process the fact that this is still happening. We talk about it when it happens, and then we don’t do anything.” CNN’s Melissa Alonso, Amir Vera and Mirna Alsharif contributed to this report.
