PTSD and School Shootings

The topic that I chose for my project is PTSD in survivors of school shootings. I’ve decided to focus on three shootings in the US: The University of Texas Tower shooting, Columbine, and Parkland. I find this topic interesting since this topic is fairly recent in US history. For my blog post this week, I wanted to share a video based on my topic. Below I have posted a ted talk from Avery Stark who’s sisters were attending Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on the day of the shooting. She discusses the growing number of students developing PTSD and that the country should offer more in terms of help.
