Notes Taken on the Stoneman Douglas High School Shootings


Here’s a post on the Security Magazine blog by a father and his daughter, who attends Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, where a shooter caused terror and death recently.

Shortly after the shootings, Oren Alter housed several of his daughter, Yuval’s, friends who could not get home immediately. Their wanted to talk about their grisly experience.

Owen took notes and here lists the students’ experiences and, in an adjoining column, their apparent implications.

Part of the problem at the school, for example, was whether a drill was happening or not. It was no drill, the lesson being that “Planned drills should be clearly communicated ahead of time. There should be no confusion as to what is a drill and what is not.”

Read down the two-column list – the “Survivors’ Experience” and “Possible Implications” of each aspect of the shootings – and it’s almost like being on the scene with its confusion and lessons for schools everywhere.
