In the Wake of a Shooting
My friend, Megan Doney, has lived through a school shooting. This was over ten years ago at the New River Community College, but it still haunts her every day. She's written a beautiful essay published in Creative Nonfiction, called The Wolf and the Dog
We discuss this moving piece in Episode 6 of The Personal Element podcast.
Megan explores the fact that there is so little scholarship on trauma for educators in the wake of a shooting. She is also working on a memoir which chronicles her journey to help change laws and heal her own trauma.
Come listen or read the essay as we try to understand why this keeps happening in our country.
