1:22 am
and eighteen alone all of which have four more victims who were killed or injured. to highlight the reality that when it comes to gun violence no place is sacred malls movie theaters places of worship even schools. but these shootings continue to happen this is where i carry curse every day with me. little baby earth. and that's why i carry him with me all the time. in the is as crazy as it sounds this really does give me peace doesn't it does that i have him with me all the time. even though he's in there a little piece of him in sit in there it makes me feel good that i still carry my son with me. in this episode of faultlines we explore the long lasting trauma of mass shootings on a generation of survivors and victims' families. and the new normal that day and
1:23 am
the country continues to reconcile. two thousand and eighteen was the worst year on record for gun violence in us schools. and the majority were killed in two mass shootings. one of those was in a small city south of houston texas called santa fe. the worst thing you have to worry about missing a fake is literally get run over by cow i said that. and here i am rushing to school because most got shut. out i had bought a credit. card to not only without anyone i was. going. to start a roman in the n.f.c. like cobbs running. but i don't really remember much.
1:24 am
heart that aren't going to go under fire are. often. seen moms cry in seeing people reunited with their kids and. it was just waiting for chris. who we met work. tracking new developments a plane has crashed last year it's santa fe high school in texas. i'm eighteen two thousand and eighteen this became the side of the twenty ninth mass shooting that year. say the suspect carried out the attack with a shotgun and handgun both taken from his father after planting explosives inside the high school. the seventeen year old gunman a student at the school killed ten people. among them was his football team a chris rosie stone son. he was interested in the middle kid. he was
1:25 am
not shot a cry. he was a mama's boy one hundred percent mama's boy. we met rosie and chris is older sisters angelica mercedes at her brother's home about a five minute drive from santa fe high school. when i took him to prom his junior prom the saturday before most kids don't want their mom and dad there. he wanted me there. but that's just who chris was i i taught my. for christmas sisters reliving happy memories help them cope in the months after. the three amigos. he was only one who committed so goofy face. but the trauma of losing chris changed their lives in ways they're still coming to terms with. your good days where you don't cry as much.
1:26 am
you don't want to just stay at home all day. and then you have your really bad days where you just want to talk to them. even when it's. chris would have wanted. me not to put my life on the field. and i haven't. but every day i think about him. got a phone call i think about it constantly make one phone call changed my life forever like that second and every moment while chris is being killed. will she never have to think of their kid or their brother or their sister like that. it's been particularly hard for rosie. she told us she hasn't been able to sleep for
1:27 am
more than three hours at a time since her son was killed. there is not a place in my home. and that's what makes it hard. so what i do is a spin couple of hours every single day at my house. i haven't tried to stay the night there yet. eight months on and you haven't spent the night back in that house you know i can't. i really can't. just a lot of memories so it's hard for her to. do it. like little things from taking up the trash like chris took out the trash chris about the dogs like it's just hard. to see instead finds peace in an unlikely place. where the shooting happened. right here see that door. that's the art room where my son was and is going to ministration is planning to tear down
1:28 am
the part of the building where people were killed the rosie has been fighting to keep it i literally go in there and i sit. in chris's spot. and i'll sit there for me about thirty forty five minutes nobody talks to me or not then i don't say nothing i just sit there. and when i leave i feel a little better because. that's when chris took his last breath. you know i was there when he took his first one and i wanted to be where he took his last one of. those he is haunted by how chris is death could have been avoided. and like many others in santa fe which sits in the heart of texas gun country her focus has been on improving school safety measures not gun control . i don't blame the gun. it wasn't a gun that walked in there by itself and killed my son parents need to be held
1:29 am
responsible gun owners need to be held responsible rosie supports expanding background checks for people buying firearms ever and she also believes that guns can keep her and her family safe in fact after christmas death rosie and her daughters got licenses to carry concealed hangups i do feel like it's a safe tool i don't like that now our students feel that way i don't like that that our kids feel like they have to have some kind of weapon in order to make it in this world but that's the reality that we live in. that reality means that as parents in their kids to school they're now thinking of ways to keep them safe there. and there's a growing industry to help them. lockdown drill right now if this was your classroom this is the only door in and out where would your teacher have you go and go there now. don't just go. this is
1:30 am
a class for kids as young as eight years old called school say. it's one hundred eighty eight tactical a private company in omaha nebraska. it's meant to supplement the lockdown drills which are now conducted in nine out of tempo schools across the country what it is representing to us six desks we have a full scale what is. teacher tell you do stay close until the thank god we. only right now what if the gun shooter comes in your classroom. if somebody came in that door right now and pointed a gun in this direction do we know that desk is going to help out. no so what would we what would we do if someone pointed a gun in this direction over the course of two and a half hours. the kids were different self-defense strategies based on the run hide fight model we're going to run away from the bad guys are you guys ready to go to
1:31 am
the way for. the instructors retired police sergeant and believes the kids need more perforation to evade and even fight off an attacker when they're currently getting in most schools go go go go go go run. run. scarem we're not trying to turn them into swat commanders or anything like that is just to give them some information and give them some strategies so if something were to happen in their little part of the world they would have an idea of what to do. i'm just going to come in with my hands open like this like a catcher and i'm going to come in and grab this here. and hang on tight right somebody's coming in here what does that say about our effort to educate our children that they are in their minds preparing to potentially be killed in their own school i mean as unlikely as it is it doesn't feel that way to are kids we
1:32 am
don't know how that's going to affect an entire generation we john cox is a reporter for the washington post who's investigated the impact of gun violence on children including the psychological toll of lockdown drills at schools someone has to get the gun i'm shooting people right now school shootings are no more common now than they were in the one nine hundred ninety s. and the likelihood of a child dying. one remains low. but after each mass shooting the demand for schools and kids to be prepared goes up hill so we know that lock downs can be incredibly frightening but should we not have the kid do the drill and then the day comes and they have no idea what to do that's probably not a trade that parents or teachers would make go. to. bed is the reality until we as a country make some really significant changes for the shootings from occurring in the first place or your belt i know i know we've talked about running i mean
1:33 am
fighting we haven't talked about giving aid all right this is just a brief little thing about pleading control and it will work on kids your age and it will tie one not whom but the pencils in their. mouths watching your presentation i thought this was curious enough to talk to kids about a woman get shot in the medium bleeding on the mall what do you think about that he took his talk but i did do it i believe our kids know about this kind of stuff all right and i don't believe in a lot of respects that we give our kids credit for being able to handle what it is that needs to be talked about and because of that that's where we were very blunt or just very straightforward it's going to hurt you more the way about see that than anything in that presentation was as it was a. really. kind filing cared for how the.
