“What we really need is highly trained security, better safety systems, and a lot more effect from congress to ensure the students safety.” - Hannah Holmes

“After Columbine, a phrase was developed, ‘post-Columbine.’ There was ‘post-Columbine’ school policies, ‘post-Columbine’ sentiment, ect. There will not be a ‘post-Parkland’ classification, even if more people died. Why? Because this is the new normal.” - Daniel Mendez

“Actions speak louder than words, safety is barley present, and should be increased by maintenance of security and school alarms.” - Luis Trejo

“I’d feel safer if my teachers were trained and registered to use a firearm.” - Tanner Nelson

“Once you are placed in a dangerous situation, one must take action to prevent disaster. So I feel like we must do more as a student body to protect lives.” - Dianna Gonzalez
