Meeting with Survivors of Columbine and Stoneman Douglas
February 28, 2018
Moving Forward from the Tragedy of a School Shooting
Today on The Balancing Act, we sit down with survivors of devastating school shootings that occurred 19 years apart. Columbine survivor Crystal Miller has gone on to become an internationally known author, speaker and advocate for survivors of school violence.
We also hear from Carson Campbell, a student at Parkland, Florida’s Stoneman Douglas High School, the scene of the mass shooting that killed 17 students and teachers this past February 14. On that terrifying day, Carson was right next to the school’s freshman building, where the shooter went on his rampage. We learn about the importance of leaning on the community in these times of mourning, and how vital it is to embrace the grieving process. Plus, we get a father’s perspective: how Doug Campbell reacted the moment he learned his son’s school was the scene of an active shooter.
