U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- For six and a half minutes he was trapped in a closet. Listening as 150 rounds were fired. In his mind, each shot killing a friend a favorite teacher or his sister. Over and over… 150 times.
This generation is not what I would call tough or mature. They’re coddled, protected and the worse adversity they ever face is what emoji to use on their new iPhone.
Medscape.com provides us the following:
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in children and adolescents occurs as a result of a child’s exposure to 1 or more traumatic events: actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violence. The victim may experience the event, witness it, learn about it from close family members or friends, or experience repeated or extreme exposure to aversive details of the event. Potentially traumatic events include physical or sexual assaults, natural disasters, and accidents.
So I’ll also ask – he biked home to get his camera? What happened to his phone? Or did he head home to change his shorts?
These children don’t need to be paraded around as stalking houses for the left; they need to be getting their lives back to normal and spending time with their families and probably a good therapist.
Lastly – the three JROTC cadets who gave their lives to save others. The one who did NOT hide in a closet, or taunt and bully the shooter until he broke. Remember them? The leftwing media never mention their names. They saved scores of lives and yet they are the ones who are forgotten. I choose to remember their names and the names of their classmates who saved lives. Peter Wang, Alaina Petty, Martin Deque, and all the others. The REAL heroes of Broward.
I’m going to catch flack for saying this. (F**k it here goes.) The best that Broward had to offer, their finest young men and women are not the ones who we see on CNN. The best are those who sheltered another student, guiding others to safety or those who died trying to stop the killing. These children and adults took action when it mattered. It is these young men and women we should be seeing on cable and who should be lauded. Not the entitled elitists and bullies that are currently learning to read from a teleprompter and are nothing but tools of the left.
