With every school shooting, my coaches at Leading Learners and I look at each other in shock, speechless, not knowing what to say, wishing so desperately that this was not the reality our students are facing. We hear about students going through terrifying drills at school and being the first generation of American children to prepare for the possibility of being killed by the very classmates hiding under the desks next to them. We ask the questions we always ask: what is it that our youth are asking us to consider? How does it get better than this? How do we even begin this conversation?
