In the wake of the Parkland school shooting, the unimaginable loss of children to gun violence has once again brought discussions of gun control, mental illness, and school safety to the forefront of the national discussion. Michele Gay, who lost her daughter in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, co-founded Safe and Sound Schools, a national resource for school safety.
Gay and other Sandy Hook parents travel the country sharing their message of inspiration, recovery, and school safety education and advocacy. Through workshop and seminars, they bring the Safe and Sound school safety model and resources to communities across the United States in the hope of preventing another tragedy. Carolee McGrath brings us her story.
