“When you get shot, you need to close your fingers and keep ‘em in,” adds Tammy Kozinski, the drama teacher. “When the bad guy and the police
come through, they’ll step all over you, and who will be saying they’re sorry?”
“Nobody!” the students cry in unison.
Graphic School Shooting Drill on NBC news site.
I read the snipped above and was like wtf? What The footballs!
I think this is sick. It makes all those crazy stories about "faked events" come to mind, when you see how easy it is to do something like this.
Imagine slightly better props then used for this news story. It's like being mocked by NBC news in a way.
I think participating in something like this could scar the mind of a young child, but what do I know.
Unfortunately, children of America are already scarred. School shootings are rapidly becoming more frequent. I don't see anything that suggests we
will ever return to fist fights in the schoolyard.
People can blame guns and rightly so perhaps, blame the shooters more, the society as a whole... whatever we can blame it on; and it's a combination
of many things. The bottom line is that children and young adults need to be prepared now.
These drills are excellent tools in teaching survival skills. I would rather have a child prepared in the event, than while in shock, not knowing what
to do to help themselves survive the event.
It has been proven that skills learned from this type of training can strengthen a person in the first few moments of shock. They will kick into gear
what they were taught.
If one looks to all previous incidents, not knowing how to respond has cost more lives than it should have.
Personally, I advocate this type of training. How very sad, that we would even have to train children for this.
But sadder really, if we don't give them the tools to survive it.
