We are not parents but it saddens us to see that a bunch of graduating 8th graders received bulletproof backpacks as a gift. Entering highschool should be a fun and exciting time for these kids. They should be worrying about their grades, school dances, and football games. They should not be stressing whether they will be killed or not. Times definitely have changed since we were in highschool and we can't possibly imagine what the parents of these kids are thinking and feeling. Thoughts?
Students in the US have been given bulletproof shields to place in their backpacks to protect themselves from school shootings https://t.co/T9PGg4ZQEH— Sky News (@SkyNews) June 6, 2018
