These marches and protest are necessary in order to preserve our future and protect our educational rights. Its a sad day when our kids are leading the fighting stance out of ear. I believe in protecting oneself but I am also a teacher and I have 49 students this year. Although we have drills in case something like a shoot out happens, it leaves one in a mental state of unassurance and constant fear. If this can happen in one place it surely can happen in another. I believe the safety measure in place in various locations across the nation are necessary.
