In the wake of the tragic Santa Fe High school shooting in Texas many were left terrified and heartbroken, yet, unsurprised that it has happened again. According to CNN, there has been, on average, 1 mass shooting in the US every week this year.

Student Andrew Schneidawind started the trending hashtag #IfIDieInASchoolShooting in the hope of bringing attention to public safety, and the tragic effect each mass school shooting has on all of us. The hashtag became trending on Twitter, and hundreds of students have already shared the things they would miss out on if they were killed. Many reflected on the loved ones they would leave behind, and others shared the experiences and goals they would never be able to accomplish.

The students took the chance to pressure legislators to pass an effective gun control reform. And no matter on which side of the gun law reform debate you are, these testimonies will definitely make you feel heartbroken.

Dark, but it’d be a needed slap in the face to the NRA creeps.

So true, the killers are always remembered and victims too soon forgotten.

oh lord, ugly crying. This is so senseless. These students are asking for the right to live their lives, and this can be achieved with common sense and the will of politicians.
