One of my biggest fears as a teenager going to public school is whether or not I am going to come home safe. Every day around the U.S., tragic shootings and events happen that change the lives of many families forever. As I see more of these devastating events happening in my community, I want to make a change.

Students should not have to fear going to school every day. Parents should not have to worry about whether they will see their child that afternoon. Teachers should not need procedures in the case that this ever does happen. Unfortunately, the world we live in says otherwise. 

Many people believe that we can't do anything about it, but I am tired of living in fear. I personally believe that we cannot stop people from wanting to hurt others. But we can prevent them from having the ability to commit these horrible actions. Yes, this idea would be costly and yes, it will require more experienced staff to handle the equipment. 

But aren't our lives worth more than a little extra money?
