STATEMENT FROM NABSE ON MARJORY STONEMAN DOUGLAS HIGH SCHOOL
After taking a moment to grieve with the nation, NABSE adds its voice to the chorus of us mourning the loss of 17 people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Beyond merely extending our hopes and prayers, we stand in solidarity with the young courageous student activists who are calling on their elected officials at the local, state, and federal level to take serious action around gun policy.
Sadly this was the 18th time shots were fired on a school campus. The social media images were gripping and the audio that came from that day was terrifying yet we hope and will do everything we can to see that this is the last mass shooting on a school campus.
We express our sincere condolences to every family that lost a loved one that day. We are in constant prayer that the school community heals physically and emotionally from the trauma of that awful day and NABSE's leadership and members remained committed to the safety and welfare of the students we serve.
