Florida students return to school two weeks after mass shooting that killed 17


Members of the Broward County Police Benevolent Association handed carnations to students as they entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school on Wednesday, two weeks after a former student gunned down 17 people inside the freshman building.

For student Madison Geller, Wednesday offered an opportunity to get back into a routine, in spite of her fears. “When I walk in there, I’m going to replay the whole thing in my head. But we have to come here and try to learn,” the high school junior said. “This week we will try to be comfortable and get back into the same routine.” Angelyse Perez, a senior, said returning offers a chance for everyone to “get through this and be together”. “But I’m graduating,” she said. “I just want to get out of here.”On 14 February an expelled classmate with an AR-15 killed 17 people in a massacre that has profoundly altered the lives of the survivors.(theguardian)…[+]
