The Hill reports:
Parkland, Fla., shooting survivors Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg responded Friday to the deadly Texas high school shooting, with Gonzalez saying in a tweet that the students deserve more than “thoughts and prayers.” Gonzalez tweeted hours after a shooter opened fire at Santa Fe High School near Houston. At least nine fatalities and several injuries, including one law enforcement officer, have been reported. David Hogg, another Parkland shooting survivor, also responded, delivering a harsh criticism of politicians.
Santa Fe High, you didn’t deserve this. You deserve peace all your lives, not just after a tombstone saying that is put over you. You deserve more than Thoughts and Prayers, and after supporting us by walking out we will be there to support you by raising up your voices.

Get ready for two weeks of media coverage of politicians acting like they give a shit when in reality they just want to boost their approval ratings before midterms.

At least 8 students have been shot and killed at Santa Fe High School.
Prepare to watch the NRA boast about getting higher donations.
Prepare to see students rise up and be called ‘civil terrorists’ and crisis actors.
Prepare for the right-wing media to attack the survivors.
