subject line: thank God we are alive. March 20, 2018 by Hannah Brencher A School in Western New York our school went into a light lockdown. some kid who had been expelled was threatening to come back and shoot people. no one was armed in the building. kids didn’t have to hide behind locked doors. and yet, I’m throwing up in the teacher’s bathroom because I am just a substitute. I am just a twenty one year old recent college graduate. I am not qualified to hold these lives in my hands. But it was only a light lockdown. We are all still alive.
