Last week on Valentines Day, the United States experienced its 18th school shooting since January 1st 2018. It was devastating. Seventeen people –students and teachers– were shot dead. Fifteen more were injured when former student, Nikolas Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Footage of grieving students, parents and teachers bled onto our screens as we watched in horror, wondering how much longer America could stomach such atrocities.
