It’s almost 4 years since the shooting in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut that killed 26 people. Now a video, Evan, has been released by Sandy Hook Promise, a group made up of loved ones of those killed in the 2012 shooting.
The video shares the story of Evan, who communicated with another student by writing on the library desk. As the friendship blossomed, Evan kept guessing who the other person is. Finally they met in an end of school term event. When everyone thinks this is the happy ending of a love story, there comes the chilling twist.
The 2-minute video delivered a powerful message that gun violence can be prevented if we pay more attention to our surroundings and notice the warning signs.
