Parkland Students Speak to Trump at Listening Session: ‘People Need to Feel Safe’

A few Marjory Stoneman Douglas students who survived the horrific shooting last week appeared at President Trump‘s White House listening session this afternoon.

The students who spoke got personal and emotional about what they went through and how students should just be able to feel safe going to school.

One student, Carson Abt, brought up the issue of needing mandatory drills across the country to President Trump.

Another student, Justin Gruber, talked very personally about being born “into a world where I never got to experience safety and peace.” he said, “There needs to be a change. People need to feel safe and parents shouldn’t have to go through the idea of losing their child.”

You can watch remarks from some of the students above, via Fox News.
