Parkland Students Respond to School Shooting at Great Mills High in Maryland

Several students who survived the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last month began responding to a reported shooting at a high school in Maryland on Monday.

The shooting happened at Great Mills High School in Maryland, and students from the Florida massacre spoke out to lend their support.

"We are Here for you, students of Great Mills … together we can stop this from ever happening again," said Emma González on Twitter.

González has been one of the most vocal proponents for change in the wake of the Parkland shooting. González survived the shooting that killed 17 people and has appeared on a variety of national media platforms to advocate for gun control reform.

"Every time I see a headline like this my heart breaks. This should not- this can not be the reality we are forced to live in. My heart goes out to Great Mills. Our goal stands stronger than ever," said Delaney Tarr, another student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, on Twitter.

Tarr also responded to a tweet from an apparent student at the Maryland high school confirming the shooting.

"I am so, so, sorry. Be safe. Be strong. We love you," said Tarr.

Another Parkland student was in disbelief.

"Why why why why why why why why," asked Sofie Whitney.

The Florida student continued her message across several tweets.

"My heart is so heavy for the people at Great Mills High School. This kind of headline should not be a weekly occurrence. I'm so sorry," said Whitney. "Each day it becomes more evident that we need change. We won't stop fighting. This won't be the norm. It can't be. Great Mills High School, on Saturday, and everyday, we stand with you."

Parkland student Sarah Chadwick called for politicians to do something about gun violence.

"We are begging for our lives and politicians countinue [sic] to ignore us. This is on their hands. This is what happens when we beg for common sense gun laws and you don't listen," said Chadwick on Twitter. "DO SOMETHING INSTEAD OF JUST SITTING IN YOUR FANCY CHAIRS!"

Many details of the shooting were not immediately clear Monday morning, but police were investigating, and the school was on lockdown. St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron said that three people were injured, including the shooter. The shooter exchanged gunfire with a school resource officer, according to Cameron.
