Trigger Warnings on TV

My name is Maisie and I’m 14 years old. I have PTSD and I want to see change for trigger warnings on news channels. I know firsthand how damaging it is to see images with no warning about triggering topics on the news. I think it’s important to keep up to date with the world around us but some of us find ourselves not watching the news because triggering subjects are sprung upon us with now warning. My solution is to have either a subtitle with what the subject matter of the story is or a warning of what the story will be. My PTSD comes from the Ariana Grande concert and when images of the night come up with no warning it can trigger panic attacks. On behalf of all people who experience the same, this needs to change. Triggers are serious and can affect lots of people negatively.
