In memory of Charles Cohen

I am the daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, and aunt of both survivors and victims of two mass shootings that happened almost 70 years apart. My father was 12 years old in 1949 when, on a sunny, warm September morning, a neighbor, with access to a weapon and a list of unfounded grudges, killed 13 people. The victims included my father’s mother, father and grandmother.

Almost 70 years later, my niece was a senior at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14, 2018 …

I am a school nurse and write and speak about the impact of gun violence on school communities. I also believe in treating gun violence like a public health emergency.

My work focuses on promoting the shared value of student/child/teen safety through implementing safe storage education and providing equipment using a harm reduction model. Why not have gun locks at back-to-school nights in schools across the U.S.?

I appreciate the work of Moms Demand Action and the #BeSMART program.
