MiamiHerald / As Carly Novell concealed herself inside her school newspaper’s closet at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday, it was not just terrifying — it was also hauntingly familiar.
A mass shooter was roaming the hallways, and panicked students were stuffing themselves into tiny spaces to evade him.
History was repeating itself.
This is my grandpa. When he was 12 years old, he hid in a closet while his family was murdered during the first mass shooting in America. Almost 70 years later, I also hid in a closet from a murderer. These events shouldn’t be repetitive. Something has to change. #douglasstrong pic.twitter.com/nDctTNlUNs
