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 school shooting in the US every week this year.

Student Andrew Schneidawind started the hashtag #IfIDieInASchoolShooting in the hope of bringing attention to 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, 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 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.
