Here’s What It’s Like At The Headquarters Of The Teens Working To Stop Mass Shootings
At dusk on Sunday night, Cameron Kasky was taking a brief, quiet moment for himself. He lay on a picnic table in a park not far from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where a gunman opened fire Wednesday, killing 17 of his classmates and teachers, and wounding 14 others.
Kasky was exhausted. He estimated that he’d done more than 50 interviews since the shooting, all to promote a movement against gun violence that he and his young friends have spearheaded in the wake of their school’s tragedy.
“We, as a community, needed one thing,” he said of his desire to form the group to give his friends a purpose amid the grief.
