Generation lockdown

At the beginning of this school year, a football game at Kennedy High School in Richmond, California, was interrupted by gunshots only 20 yards away from the field. Guns on school campuses don’t always end up being the mass killings that make national news— unless you live near there, you probably never even heard about it. School shootings can fly under the national radar or make headlines – but the kids who witness them are affected all the same. “This year, there have been more than 60 gun incidents on campuses around the country. And for kids my age, we’ve spent our entire lives thinking about school shootings.” The report aired on All Things Considered and comes from Youth Radio.
