Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were also in attendance. Several of the teens survived last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida where 17 people were killed.
“It was very scary,” said Julia Cordover. “I appreciate you hosting me. I am confident you will do the right thing.”
“Time has stood still,” Parkland School Shooting survivor Sam Zief says. “I lost my best friend who is practically my brother, I am here to use my voice because he can’t.”
The listening session was led by the president, Vice President Mike Pence, and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
