When communities confront the aftermath of school shootings

Published October 30, 2022


CNN reported on a spate of school shootings last week and quoted Amanda Nickerson, who said, “We know that there have been surges in depression and anxiety among youth, and parents and school children report being concerned about a school shooting in their school.” She added that the impacts of shootings affect everyone, not just those who experience them directly. She said that the repeated gun violence in classrooms “shatter our sense of security and safety” and leave many angry, fearful and in a constant state of worry.
