I remember the first time we ever had a lock down in my elementary school.
I was 6 years old, and I got to sit under my desk,
I thought it was fun.
I didn’t understand what a lock down was.
As I grew up, we continued to do lock down drills.
I remember me and 2 other students pretending to hide under our German teacher’s desk once.
It was all fun and games.
But these tragedies aren’t fun and games.
