Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student activists are returning to school. Having spent time raising awareness, they are experiencing some not-so-good life lessons.
Lauren Hogg, the sister of activist and opportunist David Hogg, is not a happy person. During her absence, school administrators have put in place “draconian” measures designed to keep students safe.
Students will have new ID’s and are required to wear clear backpacks. They rightly expressed some skepticism:
Many students, like Robinson, aren’t happy about the new security measures. She pointed out that the gunman, Nikolas Cruz, was not a student of Stoneman Douglas at the time of the shooting, so the new security measures that appear to target students are counterproductive.
“It’s like putting into place all these rules that wouldn’t have changed anything,” Robinson said.
I’m guessing that all the energy spent on shouting, shaming and vilifying others hasn’t worked out so well.
At least the school system believes they are safer.
