Sandy hook promise released a new public service announcement Wednesday that begins with excited students showing off new school supplies but quickly morphs into a nightmarish hellscape where they are forced to use those same items to survive a school shooting.

The powerful video features a boy and girl holding up scissors and colored pencils to defend themselves against a shooter as well a girl ripping off her tube socks and using them as a tourniquet on a student’s bloody leg. The video ends with a girl hiding in a bathroom stall, texting her mom a final “I love you” goodbye on her pink glittery phone.unquote.

After watching about the video, hiding under my desk during air raid drills during elementary school excercises seems kinda comforting...

Nicole Hockley, who co-founded Sandy Hook Promise said:
“Gone are the days of viewing back-to-school as just a carefree time, when school violence has become so prevalent. If we come together to know the signs, this doesn’t have to be the case. I hope that parents across the country will join me to make the promise to stop this epidemic.”
Prevalent means widespread in a particular area or at a particular time. There are approximately 132,853 K-12 schools in the U.S. I think someone need to reevaluate their basis in fact.
