    Growing up, Lizzie never realized how deeply she was affected by what she saw on the news and experienced at school. But when she took the time to look back, she started to understand that events she experienced really impacted her way of thinking and daily life, and the level of her anxiety.
    When Lizzie was younger, she lived at Fort Hood - the biggest U.S. military base in the country. She was there when a horrible shooting happened. The day after the horrific event, she went to school and saw armed guards surrounding the building. When she approached a guard, he assured her that he was there to protect her. But because Lizzie was so young, she didn't understand why she needed to be protected at school. At such a young age, the whole thing was really confusing.
    Then, when Lizzie was in middle school, another student brought a weapon to school. The student was caught before he was able to use his weapon, and the school was able to avoid a potentially dangerous situation. However, even though Lizzie was so grateful that things didn't escalate, the whole experience still really scared her.
    After that, Lizzie felt a similar sense of fear, confusion and sadness when she heard about the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook. She couldn't imagine how the victims must have felt, and she hugged her younger brother and told him she loved him after hearing about what happened on the news.
    Then, when Lizzie was a senior in high school, she found out about another tragedy at Stoneman Douglas. As much as it broke her heart to hear about yet another school shooting, Lizzie couldn't help but feel numb to the pain - and that scared her even more.
    After each event, Lizzie became more anxious in her daily life. When her school had an active shooter drill, she couldn't help but fear the worst, and she immediately texted her brother to make sure he was okay.
    Lizzie believes that, although this is hard for anyone to comprehend, it is especially difficult for kids and teenagers. She doesn't understand why her generation has to feel any sense of fear when walking into a school, going to a store or heading to a movie. She may think to herself, "When did this become normal?" However, Lizzie has hope for the future. She thinks that her generation will be the change that the world needs to make a difference, and she is hopeful that future generations will not have experience what Lizzie and her classmates went through.

      The only thing to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. Trump is honestly doing more good than bad by not doing anything. For instance, the Sutherland Church Shooting in which the shooter was stopped by an armed citizen saving many lives. And the 1892 Dalton Gang raid where 5 bandits were stopped by an armed town.

    I feel terribly bad for this girl, but i just also want to say banning guns won't solve anything, there are Knifes, modified bee bee guns, scissors Etc, lots of things you can bring to school that can put someone in critical condition Or even death.....

      No, that is not how it works, think about the UK, there are no school stabbing in our district this year and none for the past 46 years, why is this, due to the lack of weapons.

      Then stop talking about it and stop crediting the criminals; they want their name in the news, history books and all forms of media; if we stop giving their names out school shootings will fall. In addition shooting drills at their best are security theater, and at their worst; telling the shooter the victim's escape plan.

    I live in Florida too. It is so scary that everyday I have a worrying feeling deep down that something will happen, and my anxiety definitely didn't help. It's not fair we have to live in fear for these criminals, but I hat makes me the most scared is that I always think about the pulse shooting, and I'm an out complete tomboy lesbian. So yeah that definitely scares me really bad.
