A school is a place for children to grow, a place for them to feel safe and comfortable. On December 14, 2012 a man named Adam Lanza destroyed all of this for kids attending Sandy Hook Elementary. It was a normal day, students wake up in the morning, brushed there teeth, their hair, packed their lunch and drove to school. Soon after parents drop their kids off at school and say have a nice day. As the bell rings the kids run into their classrooms and start their day learning. But later something terrible happens, something unspeakable happens. A man abruptly tries to get into the locked doors as he shoots his way in and kills twenty children and six staff members. After this tragic event occurred schools of all around the United States became more alert of intruders breaking into their schools. Parents were worried about the well being of their children at school. Truthfully, I was a little scared about my safety at school. I didn't know if I was completely safe at school but soon after the Sandy Hook shooting our school hired a security guard to protect and watch over our school. I think the Sandy Hook shooting was a wake up call to all schools that anything can happen at any moment. The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary was an event that we as people want to say never happened but the families and loved ones of the kindergartners and staff members that died will morn their deaths forever.
