High school students refuse to be silenced and ignored on the gun violence crisis in our country. #MyLastShot is the latest movement to sweep the internet. According to the website, #MyLastShot “is a gun-violence prevention project led by students from Columbine High School and activists across the country,”
Through the campaign website, students can order a sticker that would be applied to the back of their ID/Driver’s License that states, “In the event that I die from gun violence, please publicize the photo of my death. #MyLastShot”. See below:
#MyLastShot is inspired by the graphic post-mortem photo of Emmett Till that his mother circulated to publicize the horrific murder of her son. In a society where mass school shootings are so common, it can be easy to slip into the numbness of the stats and numbers. The organization aims to combat this, in hopes that graphic imagery of these child victims will make a difference in how our country deals with these tragedies.
Visit the website to find out more about this campaign.
Chip and Nikki talked about the kids who are signing up to allow photos of their dead bodies to be shown on television in the event of a mass shooting.
