To år efter skoleskyderiet breder konsekvenserne sig som ringe i vandet

Selv efter masseskyderiet på byens gymnasium er borgere i Parkland, Florida, dybt splittede i spørgsmålet om eventuelle stramninger af USA’s liberale våbenlove.

To år efter skoleskyderiet på Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School i Parkland, Florida, er mange forældre og elever stadig mærket af oplevelsen.

In a memorial garden, items brought by students and visitors mark the remembrance of the students who were killed, wounded and those who continue to suffer from PTSD from the attack.  Items include small angels, stones with the names of the slain students written on them, messages to individuals, flowers, keepsake items, etc.  People like JENNIFER ORTIZ whose son Aidan escaped being killed, plan to vote for Joe Biden because of the failure of Donald Trump to reduce gun access and for not supporting harsher anti-gun laws.

Jennifer Ortiz sits in a courtyard of her family home in Parkland, Florida on Sept. 6, 2020.  Jennifer's son, Aidan, was a student at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school where, on February 14, 2018, a gunman opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle, killing 17 people and injuring 17 others. Her son continues to suffer from residual PTSD as does Jennifer.  Many of the students still suffer from major PTSD as do their parents, including the parents of the slain students.   She will be voting for Joe Biden because of the failure of Trump administration to support stronger gun laws among other things.
