[Rebroadcast] #22 Sarah Walker Caron, the mother of a survivor of the Sandy Hook school shooting

April 19, 2018

We're on vacation this week, but since this week is the anniversary of the Columbine shooting, we are rebroadcasting our episode with Sarah Walker Caron. Since we first aired this, there has been some movement forward - Dick's Sporting Goods (and other stores) have implemented new sales policies, the governor of Vermont, with an A rating from the NRA has signed new policies into law, and even Florida has had some movement on the legislation front, signing new policies into law as well. We'll be back next week with an all new episode!

 

Sarah Walker Caron is the mother of a survivor of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. She joins us and shares her experiences from that day, and in the years after. You also hear from Gretchen's daughters - one who was in 1st grade when Sandy Hook happened, and one who is in 2nd grade now, the same age that Sarah's son was when Sandy Hook happened - about lockdown drills.  (Heads up, this one is definitely a heavy subject.)
