Last week I was sick and I had stayed home from school. I get an e-mail saying, “oh, have you heard your school is on lockdown?” I’m like, “What??? My school isn’t on lockdown. I mean, not that I know of.”

So I go to my school website. There is a thing in red on the top of the screen. It was cut off for some reason and would show all of the words or alert. But what I could make out is that my school is in lockdown. No one is allowed in or out. So then I think to go on a news website. I look for information about school. It was right in the middle of the page. “School has been locked down because of gun threat.” I read the whole article. Some guy calls in, threatens to shoot people because him and his girlfriend broke up. Police and security and taking extra measures to make sure everyone is safe. Now I get a little sad because I wasn’t at school that day. It is not every day that something happens and when it does I find it exciting. It is also scary because you never know if the threat becomes real so I guess I’m glad I didn’t go to school that day.
