February 14, 2018 I will never know what it was like to be there that day. Screams and gunshots echoed through the hallways of Stoneman Douglas High School. 17. Dead.
I will never know the way the students and teachers that hid in fear, while the gunshots sounded and bullets flew. They held each other close, protected by closet doors and barricaded classrooms. Silent tears running down their cheeks.
One thing I know for sure is that I'm going to die a 16-year-old girl, in this lone school in Parkland, Florida, killed by a madman with a gun. Of course, I'm scared, who the hell wouldn't be? I didn't think I would be dying today. I thought I was going to give my history presentation, The one I had been working on for two weeks. I am prepared for that, I even have notecards to go along with the presentation.
