On June 9, 2017, an 18-year-old high school student in Pennsylvania shot and killed a schoolgirl wearing a school-girl costume.
The shooting prompted a mass outpouring of support and community activism that has grown into a nationwide movement that has led to changes to the federal education system.
The following is an excerpt from a video that accompanies the story: In the beginning, the police department didn’t want to talk about it.
But I would have to say, the majority of the officers were in agreement that the shooting was a hate crime.
They thought it was an act of terror.
And they said, we’re going to have to have more to say about it, but it’s not a hate act.
It’s just a very tragic event.
I have to tell you, they were afraid.
I don’t know why, but they were scared.
In all of my interactions with police, the first thing that came up over and over again was, they said it was not a terror attack.
This is just a senseless act of violence, they told me.
The police department is not responsible for the actions of the community.
I thought, I’m going to go home.
I didn’t go to the school.
I’m not going to say anything.
I’ve got no idea what to do.
But it’s too late.
And there’s a lot of people that I’m aware of who are involved in the community, people that have been victims of this, who are now out in the open, saying that this is an act that is a hate attack.
So, this is why it is so important for us to go to a school and speak to them.
If the school is open, then it’s OK to talk to them, if it’s closed, then you have to call 911.
If you need to call the police, call 911, because they’re not going away.
I think, ultimately, what we want to do is help people who are experiencing a trauma.
That’s why I think that it’s so important that we go to school, to see if there are any teachers in the room, and to get them in contact with people who may be affected.
At the end of the day, what is important is to help people, to help families, to try to get as many people in the classroom as possible.
I think, unfortunately, in our society, a lot people don’t realize that the people who make up the majority who are making up the school community, we are all part of a community.
We all know each other, and we know each others names.
We all know who is a good parent, and who is not.
We know eachother’s names, and when they are in school, we know them.
It’s not just a small group of people, but we are one big family.
People have said to me, I don and I know this is not a real community, and you can’t say, oh, you’re a racist or whatever, because that’s not who we are.
This is a real, real community that is out there, and people that are affected, they are our neighbors, we respect them.
They are our friends.
We are their neighbors.
One of the biggest things that I have noticed is that when I go out to a community meeting, I see the kids in a lot more ways than I do the adults, because we’re just so used to it.
We’re just like, you know, it’s the first time we’re ever having to do that.
It seems like we’re used to the things that we do at home.
But, I guess, you learn, you go through that.
I just think that, ultimately it’s a really important thing to try and get people to see that the community is there for them.
And, if they have problems, if there’s any questions, just ask them.
You never know when that might be the first step, to get some answers.
You don’t need to make a statement that you’re angry, because it’s just not true.
You don’t have to do anything, because there’s nothing to do if you’re not here to help, if you don’t want the world to see what we are, what it means to be in this situation, how much pain we have to go through, and how much hate we have.
When I was at a school event, people would say, “Well, it must be a good thing for your kids to see you.
You can tell that they like you.
They’re in your corner.”
And, I would say to them right away, that it is not the case, because your kids are not in my corner.
I mean, I can tell from the first minute of walking
