Don Lemon on Santa Fe: Students Have Been Marching Since Parkland, ‘Will We Finally Listen?’

Last night CNN’s Don Lemon covered the Santa Fe school shooting and talked about how adults and America’s leaders are “failing” young people.

“This is horrible.” he said of the shooting. “It is disgusting. It’s terrifying. But what it’s not, sadly, is surprising.”

He said Santa Fe shows “drills and school safety procedures alone” are not enough, and shared the words of the students who survived the shooting, including the girl who said “eventually it was going to happen here too.”

“Did you hear that?” he asked. “That should never ever happen in America”

Lemon noted that students have been marching for their lives since Parkland and asked, “Now after another deadly shooting, will we finally listen?”
