Abbey Goulding didn’t mince words this morning when it came to telling her fellow Oneonta High School students how she felt about the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on the one-month anniversary of the shooting that left 17 dead.
“Kids who should have been standing up on stage like this one in the spring, wearing the cap and gown are now lying in caskets under the ground because our government couldn’t control the weapons in America or the people getting a hold of them,” said Goulding. “So now it’s our time to be their voices that they lost too soon.”
Oneonta and Cooperstown high school students joined thousands of students across the United States in demonstrations to supporting the victims of the school gun violence.
