Montana Students React To Texas School Shooting
During first period English last Friday at Capital high school in Helena, student Noah Whitehorn, felt his phone buzz with a notification; 10 people were dead following a school shooting in a small town just outside of Houston, Texas.
“I almost cried in the middle of English class. How is this still happening? After all that we’ve done in the past few months you’d think that at least something would have been accomplished.”
Whitehorn is a member of the Helena Youth Against Gun Violence. The group, along with others in Montana, have followed in the footsteps of the national March For Our Lives movement, advocating for gun violence awareness and changes in firearm policy.
