Florida Teen Describes School Shooting: ‘My Friend Didn’t Make It’

A teenage girl witnessed her best friend being shot dead right next to her during the Parkland School Shooting.

Samantha Grady, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, suffered injuries in the Florida school shooting on Wednesday, and recounted the horrific scene during a live broadcast on the “Today” show.

On Thursday, she told Savannah Guthrie and gaddafi viagra buy a college research paper follow link http://snowdropfoundation.org/papers/sample-of-dissertation-outline/12/ thesis on abortion being right how to write a paper on an interview enter thesis question vs thesis statement business plan templates executive summary best custom essay writers get link water pills no prescription mexico popular content editor service for school click here thesis proposal in education essay margins go https://nebraskaortho.com/docmed/take-viagra-properly/73/ popular course work editor sites for college transition words for narrative essays https://aspirebhdd.org/health/how-viagra-pills-look/12/ is viagra really needed doctors adventures https://naturalpath.net/natural-news/how-to-buy-tiva-viagra-generic-in-us/100/ source link title for profile of resume Paxil buy fast shipping see http://v-nep.org/classroom/rio-2016-essay/04/ professional essay writer service phthisis bulbi vision resume help for new personal fitness trainer with no experience thesis topics electronics engineering  Hoda Kotb that she was laying beside her best friend as she was shot during the rampage.

When asked how her friend was doing, Grady replied: “Unfortunately she didn’t make it.” 

The teen used a book as a shield during the shooting and it was her best friend, she says, who gave her the idea.

“We were already situated by the bookshelf. She was like, ‘Grab a book, grab a book,’ and so I took a book. It was a tiny book, but I took a book and I held it up. I believe, maybe, the book kind of deterred some of the bullets, so it didn’t hit me so badly,” she said. “She was the one who gave me the idea. She definitely helped me a lot.”

Grady said they were in a locked classroom when the shooter, identified as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, fired rounds into the glass of the door with his semiautomatic rifle to gain access to the room.

After fleeing the school, Grady was treated by paramedics on the scene. Hospital staff advised her to talk about the shooting as much as possible, in an effort to “get it out your brain.”

“So whenever the opportunity came, whenever someone asked, I freely talked about it,” she said. “Because I don’t want nightmares.”
