Peters 1 Stephanie Peters Sonnenfeld ENC1101 - Monday 8 October 2018 Effects of the Tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Saint Valentine's Day, a day of the year typically associated with flowers, love, and chocolate, was shrouded with fear and tragedy at a high school in Parkland, Florida earlier this year. A gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) high school on February 14, 2018, killing 17 and injuring many more, making it more deadly than the Columbine shooting in 1999. This tragedy resulted in many things, including the increase of security at high schools, the empowerment of millennials, and the increase of mental health awareness. Prior to the shooting at MSD, security at high schools was relatively lax; statewide security assessments had only been highly recommended. Following the shooting, a law passed that required schools to do a yearly assessment and would be penalized if it was not conducted.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
