With all the shootings that are happening through our country it is vital to keep our school safe, to ensure that everyone has a good experience at school. But the safety of our school has to start with YOU…. if you see something, SAY SOMETHING!!!!!! Here are some things we can do as students to keep our school safe.
2. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING….. SAY SOMETHING
This is possibly the main problem in our schools today, if someone sees something, NO ONE wants to say anything. This is one of the main reasons why violence and dangerous things happen.

Now, the next question comes up….. WE DON’T WANT TO BE A SNITCH!
First off, did you guys know that the word “snitch” started in prisons, when someone would tell on another prisoner, as it states in Corrections Zone The word “snitch” would somehow make its way around to other prisoners.

I DON'T THINK SO. Just know that snitch is not a liable and credible word. In conclusion: Here are more things you can do as students to keep our school safe:
2. Listen to your intuition
It is good to look for the good in others, but people are capable of anything even if they may seem “nice”. Follow your instinct if you feel funny about something.
Our generation as a whole needs to step up and make a change, and the only way that can happen is with the help of you! If you say something, something will be done.
IF YOU HEAR SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!
