The announcement came in the middle of math class: "Judge Memorial, this is a lockdown. This is a lockdown."
It was only a drill, but we all had to crouch behind a table in the corner, while our teacher locked the door and turned out all the lights. How ridiculous that we live in a country with so many weapons that we have to waste class time learning what to do if a gunman enters our school.
People say, "It isn't the gun that is killing people, it is the person wielding it." This makes absolutely no sense.
